8 Million Stories

8 Million Stories seeks to transform the lives of vulnerable youth 16-21 through education, skills training, employment, and social and emotional support. Over the past four years, 48% of 8MS students have earned their GED, 68% have been employed, 100% have received at least one nationally recognized vocational trade certification, and 8% of graduates are pursuing higher education or career training opportunities.


NextOp’s mission is to recruit, develop, and place high-performing middle-enlisted military leaders into industry careers. NextOp’s Veteran Employment Program matches each veteran candidate with an employment coordinator who works 1:1 to help them identify civilian professions that are right for them, translate their resume, prepare for interviews, and start a new career. NextOp has helped over 2,900 veterans start new professions with an average starting salary of $55K.
