What is SkillBridge?

Program Overview

SkillbridgeThe DoD SkillBridge program is an opportunity for Service members to gain valuable civilian work experience through specific industry training, apprenticeships, or internships during the last 180 days of service. SkillBridge connects Service members with industry partners in real-world job experiences. Service members participating in SkillBridge receive their military compensation and benefits, and industry partners provide the training and work experience.
