Reviews for Travis Manion Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a current client (MAP-V) and I am really impressed with the efforts they are making to educate and prepare the members of my group for success. If their mentoring-style transition assistance were available when I first got out of the military, I could have saved a lot of time. I wish there were more organizations like TMF.

Travis Manion Foundation has helped me so much. I have learned the skills I need to make it in the corporate world after I leave the military.

I love this foundation it helped me to start on a great and solid foundation when I got out of the military I had an idea of what I wanted but they helped me with their program of MAPV, they taught you on courses on how to better market your self and taught courses on finance and everything you could need. but most importantly they became a support system for myself and that is great I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for people who understand and genuinely want to help you with your needs

The Travis Manion Foundation is a veteran focused mentoring and advocacy group that helps prepare separated military personnel get work experience in their desired field, this can be anything from pro fishing to music management. Also, TMF has professionals that give seminars and teach various professional and life skills important to being well rounded for life in general, such as, financial literacy, networking, and resume building. In addition to job and skill building, TMF gives veterans the opportunity to give back to the community so that we may continue to serve in a different way.

I heard about this group from a veteran friend who shares my major who was currently enrolled in the program. I met with a program coordinator, Albie Masland, who informed me of what the program could do for me, listened to my story and career goals with great attention, and entered me into the next cohort that would go through the TMF program's next cycle. TMF gave me the direction to seek out three volunteer/internship opportunities in my field (nutrition), which I currently am at still learning and gaining experience.

TMF provided a safe environment for myself and 19 other veterans to have a comfortable and efficient learning experience. I was not only able to meet plenty of other veterans who were trying to find their way into the world but was given the chance to observe how the program worked carefully to provide for and attend to everyone's individual needs.

The Travis Manion Foundation made a lasting impact on my life. Currently, I receive updates on activities the foundation is engaged in. The Foundation created and still builds on a community of veterans and serves them even when the official mentoring is over. Furthermore, the Foundation provided and still provides recreational opportunities, free of charge, such as, yoga, metabolic training, and beach clean ups.

Knowing foundations like this exist reassure my faith in the human spirit. I know that as a member of the armed forces who proudly served his country that I was not forgotten about. Most importantly, TMF gave me the opportunity to honor the fallen who can no longer serve.

Thank you so much Travis Manion Foundation.

TMF has inspired me to live each day in honor of all our heroes. I've joined the " If Not Me, Then Who..." movement and am proud to be a part of the team.

The Travis Manion Foundation has not only been absolutely instrumental in my transition from active duty into the civilian work force, but it has also empowered and inspired me to be a better American with its "if not me, then who?" mantra.

I can't even begin to relate the positive effect their MAP-V program has had on my life. The men and women at the Travis Manion Foundation have helped me immeasurably in my personal and professional development, since leaving the military.

It is as humbling as it is rare to find a Veteran Services Organization that actually practices what it preaches, but the folks at TMF have far exceeded my expectations.

My name is Michael White. I'm an Honorably Discharged Retired Navy Veteran who served our nation for over 13 years. I have both an AA and BA in political science with an overall 3.61 GPA. My future plans are to attend law school and become an attorney. I lost my last regular job in March 2014 due to cutbacks. It was a part time cleaning service job. So I applied for unemployment and starting searching for new work. Unfortunately and despite my immaculate record, I was having tremendous difficulty finding new work within the field of my expertise. I had probably applied to over 500 different jobs even with a professionally revamped resume with no success before I came into contact with the Travis Manion Foundation. I was referred to it by another Vet organization who thought the program might be helpful for my professional development. So I applied to it and was accepted into the 5 month program. The Travis Manion mentorship program turned out to be a great benefit to me. The staff showed concern and understanding to my circumstances. The program included various meetings to touch upon various aspects of professional growth and development and provided me with a new perspective on how to connect with the job market more successfully. Additionally, the program provided a monthly grant to assist the enrollees in the program financially which is something no other Vet assistance program does. I am indebted to the Travis Manion Foundation for their assistance. As a result, I was able to use the new skills and tools I learned in the program to finally obtain a decent paying job. That's just the beginning. Thank you Travis Manion. You are the best Vet program in the U.S.A.!

The Travis Manion Foundation and the team are simply amazing. They are the real deal and 100% for veterans and their families. After going through their mentorship program years ago and looking back at where my life is at now, I can confidently say that TMF had such a direct and pivotal impact in my transition from the Marine Corps to civilian life. What an honor and blessing it is to be a part of the TMF family!

Special shoutout to Albie and Nick!

The Travis Manion Foundation played a huge role in my transition from the military to the civilian life. Through the TMF, I was awarded a challenge grant and an internship, which allowed me to gain invaluable experience in a way that was both personal and rewarding. It allowed me to serve my community and at the same time, learn in a fast-paced and constructive work environment. Plus, Amy, Nick, and Albie at the San Diego office are super awesome folks, who are truly passionate in making a difference in our community.

TMF helped in my transition out of the Marine Corps and into the civilian workforce. Their assistance was such an important factor during the pursuit of my new career. I can now say that I am doing what I love as a registered dietitian nutritionist and will continue to support their efforts in helping other veterans find what it is they are passionate about.

I was awarded a challenge grant from the Travis Manion Foundation and I can honestly say that the experience has ensured my success for the career which I have chosen post discharge from the military. At the San Diego branch, Nick, Amy, and Albie set the bar for what staff should be like at a non profit organization because they are truly dedicated to the mission statement.

I had been out of the Army for about a year. I was in the middle of my second semester at communuty college. I overheard a conversation About TMF ( Travis Manion Foundation ), their mission, and about the awesome folks who worked their.

I did a little snooping of my own, I overlooked the foundation site and immediately signed up for the upcoming MAP-V class. I was excited to surrounded by so many people like my self. And even more excited to give back to my community from within this amazing organization. My networking skills have doubled, my network it's self has expanded exponentially.

Becoming a memeber of TMF was a solid move in my transition out of service. I'm overly grateful.

THANK you, Kelly and the TMF San Diego team !
