The ETS Sponsorship Program® operates exclusively to promote social welfare for transitioning service members, Veterans, and the communities where they live. The program is federally registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt social welfare organization. They are not organized for profit, nor are they a charity. The information the program provides is done only with the consent of its individual members.
The ETS Sponsorship Program® accomplishes its mission by partnering with local experts, local government, and certified partners. Program sponsors all complete a VA-certified sponsor training course. The program's Community Integration Coordinators® are all validated as best-in-class, trusted, and capable partners in their local region. A national network, working with the Department of Defense, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Department of Labor, to bring a team together in one common mission: to securely provide the information and relationships needed to help every transitioning service member successfully make the journey out of the military and into civilian life.
Leaving the military should be an exciting opportunity for the service member who is opening the door to the next chapter of life. Yet, often, the stresses associated with walking through this door are challenging. The ETS Sponsorship Program® ensures that the service member - and the family - get ahead of the potential stresses by facilitating support with the Services well before the official Transition Assistance Programs begin.
