ABOUT TECH FOR HEROES

DraftKings is providing training in high demand tech skills for current and returning veterans, and their spouses, to help them expand their abilities and find meaningful employment. DraftKings’ employees will be working with the veterans to grow their understanding of employment opportunities at high-tech companies and to further support the veteran graduates pursuing careers in tech. Efforts include resume development, career roadmapping and skills translation as well as peer to peer networking.

For additional information on the DraftKings Tech For Heroes program, for details on a specific class or for all media inquires, please contact TechforHeroes@draftkings.com

“I have learned more about the vast world of tech in the past month than I have in my previous 35 years on earth. This has been so incredibly beneficial to me. I wish this class was available when I got out of the service. Not only is this the best resource that has ever been available to me as a veteran, it’s a phenomenal way for employers to tap into veterans that are career and education oriented. This class is filled with people that never ever want to stop learning.”

– Robert Wining, U.S. Navy, San Francisco Class
“I’m truly grateful to DraftKings for putting together this scholarship and opportunity for both veterans and spouses. It’s not often that spouses are given an amazing opportunity alongside their veterans to learn and gain a new skillset that can be beneficial in this technological day and age.”

– Kelly To, U.S. Air Force Spouse, Boston Class

What started as a program based in Boston, where DraftKings is headquarted, quickly expanded across the country with one goal in mind: train as many veterans and military spouses as possible, in a real and meangingful way. The program will continue to grow and new cities will be included in the program, so check back often to see where Tech for Heroes will be next.
