Update On Task Force Movement’s Activities

“What we’ve seen through Task Force Movement is results. Results matter. Results speak for themselves. And the people that drive results are those who are going to change the world. That’s what we are here to do.”

– Dan Kunze, Vice-Chairman, Task Force Movement

The first three months of 2024, Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Service has continued to play a leading role in Task Force Movement (TFM) as the task force celebrates its two-year anniversary. 

Dixon Center organized and led TFM convenings as part of the American Legion’s Washington Conference in February. These convenings brought partners together to identify solutions for the military-connected community entering the trucking, cybersecurity, and healthcare professions.

Dixon Center forged a relationship with the African-American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey and built upon our existing partnership with the Minority Professional Trucker’s Association to launch the Driven By Equity workforce development program for independent trucking owners/operators. This pilot program will provide minority, veteran, and women truck drivers with the tools and training necessary to be successful small business owners.

We coordinated 35 scholarship opportunities for veterans with our partnered training providers and universities and colleges. These scholarships will lead to industry-recognized cybersecurity certifications and are the first steps to careers that are a gateway to the upper middle-class.

Additionally, Dixon Center participated in the Carolina Cyber Network’s Spring Convening in Fayetteville, NC where Dixon Center placed a spotlight on the importance of combining supportive services with cyber apprenticeships to ensure veterans and their families succeed.  

Dixon Center looks forward to continuing to bring our experience to the table in workforce development, military and civilian training and credentialing, as well as implementation of policy and legislation on behalf of transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses with our partners in TFM.
