The DoD is committed to helping military spouses find employment in high-demand, high-growth portable career fields. New Horizons can help. It is a proven fact that the more training and education job seekers have, the more likely they are to get better jobs at higher salaries. That’s why MyCAA offers the following:
- Training: Eligible military spouses are now able to receive up to $4,000 of MyCAA Financial Assistance (FA) that can help them pursue education, training, licenses, certificates, and degrees leading to employment in portable career fields. Please see the MyCAA Fact Sheet, which provides basic information about the MyCAA program and military spouse eligibility, as well as points of contact for who can help spouses, schools and participating organizations.
- Job Preparation: The schedules and locations of military spouses are always changing. Training in portable career fields, fields that are in high demand and not restricted to location or time, prepares you to enter the workforce when you choose.
- Work Readiness Services: New Horizons works closely with local partners who are involved with work readiness and developing networks of military-friendly employers who are looking to hire military spouses into good paying positions.
