Workshops For Warriors Receives Innovation Generation Grant

Workshops For Warriors received a $40,000 Innovation Generation Grant from Motorola Solutions Foundation.

Workshops For Warriors, a nonprofit school empowering veterans who are transitioning into civilian life through advanced manufacturing training and certification, announced that it received a grant for $40,000 as part of the Innovation Generation Grant program from the Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions Inc. Through the grant, Workshops For Warriors will be able to continue its successful training program and add to the more than 1,000 nationally recognized credentials it has provided to more than 280 veterans.

The Innovation Generation Grant program provides awards to organizations, such as Workshops For Warriors, which foster and support science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) initiatives for teachers and students (U.S. preschool through university level), especially girls and underrepresented minorities.

“We’re grateful to Motorola for selecting our organization as a grant recipient. These funds are vital to our being able to provide training to veterans seeking to make a better life for themselves,” says Hernàn Luis y Prado, founder of Workshops For Warriors. “Through our program, we’re able to provide veterans with training and opportunities in a field that offers meaningful careers and wages.”

The Motorola Solutions Foundation grant program will impact about 1 million students and teachers, each receiving an average of 120 programming hours from our partner non-profit organizations and institutions.
