Created in 2015, the U.S. Army's Career Skills Program allows retiring and separating Soldiers to participate in skills training during their transitional period to improve their civilian employment options. The program’s focus is on pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeships, on-the-job training, internships, job shadowing and other types of employment skills training during Soldiers’ last 180 days of service. Army Emergency Relief created the retired Lt. Gen. Nathaniel R. Thompson Jr. Career Skills Support Program to provide $3 million in grants to Soldiers participating in CSP. The funds can go toward travel expenses (airfare or fuel); uniforms/business attire; tools/CSP training supplies; lodging; and utilities.
