Having experienced the FourBlock program has prepared me greatly for the challenges of transition from active military services. The instruction provided is straightforward and in real-time, the ideal combination to increase the effectiveness of any service member looking at applying skills in the corporate world. Current transition programs provided to service members do not come close to the professionalism and structure that FourBlock provides. I am proud to be a FourBlock Alumni and will credit all my future success to this experience. I highly recommend this program.

Fourblock is a great resource for student veterans, as well as transitioning soldiers searching for a clear understanding of their professional end goals. I have personally met amazing people, both peers and professionals that have helped me to gain better insight of the corporate world and self-growth. There are an many opportunities offered to network and connect with men and women in professional settings. I would recommend this foundation to anyone and everyone.

To be honest, when I started I thought " How is any of this going to make a difference in my life" as well as "I have so little time already, maybe I should not be spreading myself thinner by taking this". Let me tell you, before the course was even over I was already starting to see then drastic benefits my experience here has granted me. I can already look back and see significant ways my life would be different if I had not taken this course (and I would have been very much worse off if I would have opt out). This course has given me vital skills, essential awareness, invaluable connections, and substantial increase in confidence to operate in a field (the civilian corporate sector) that struck me as overwhelmingly alien, impermeable, and something I would just have to try a roll of dice to see where my life ended up. Now, not only can I see behind the veil, I know how to work it and people have people who will work with me if I need help. In a word, this course was imperative.

Great experience!
Four Block is the enlightened opportunity that addresses every area ranging from the mindset preparation – understanding the economy through the eyes of industries – developing confidence in approaching a new era of life – understanding one’s self and developing the ability to identify core competencies.
Above all, the networking experience and encounter with open minded professionals and successful individuals is the exceptional deal maker.

FourBlock is hands-down the best transition program for veterans out there. I have been in the Marine Corps for over 18 years and easily rank this above the other programs offered. The networking opportunities, executive mentoring, and one on one instruction is invaluable!!! I cannot thank the FourBlock team enough for their time and efforts to set all of the students up for success. Highly recommend this program for anyone considering transition from military service, regardless of how long you have served!!!!

The Fourblock foundation was immensely helpful to mapping out my transition plan. The 10 week course provided valuable insight and provided me the tools to make a successful transition after active duty. I can not give enough accolades to this organization for the resources and tools that they provide for veterans in the transition process.

Fourblock is a great asset to veterans as it does help with the transition process. Not only does it assist veterans in future career goals, resume writing, and interviewing techniques but it also provides an invaluable resource to learn and develop networking among veterans and those that support us. I really appreciate everything I have learned and the ability to participate in such an outstanding program.

I've been volunteering with FourBlock for the past several months and have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing individuals and hear their stories. To be able to help, even in such a tiny way compared to what each of them has done, is truly rewarding and I look forward to continuing my relationship with FourBlock in the years to come!

The corporate training programs that the staff at Fourblock provide are a great resource for transitioning service members and Veterans in the Greater NorthWestern Region of the United States. I am far better connected and more prepared to enter the civilian workforce because of the tools that I gained by attending Fourblock Programs. Thank You to Monica McNeal and her Team for their efforts to provide this training and guidance during our transition from the military. I believe, this is truly an expectation management establishing process and a genuine and sincere effort to better prepare myself and my Family for a positive entrance into the civilian workforce.

I first came across FourBlock over 2 years ago while working at a non-profit. I was incredibly impressed by the scope of information and the dedication of the people there. As a veteran in transition myself, I could see the benefit and wished something like this had been available when I left the military. I began immediately recommending the program to my own clients, other veterans in transition. I then began hearing first hand about the impact and watched them one by one get connected to employers and new opportunities. I have seen how effective FourBlock is and the positive changes it's made in veterans and military families' lives. I can NOT recommend this program highly enough. I eventually utilized the program myself and I am a proud alumni! Thank you FourBlock.
