The Veteran Apprenticeship and Labor Opportunity Reform Act (VALOR)

To connect veterans directly with career opportunities in restaurants and foodservice, the NRAEF’s restaurant management apprenticeship program can now serve as on-the-job training through the Veteran Apprenticeship and Labor Opportunity Reform (VALOR) Act. Through VALOR, Restaurant Management apprenticeship is now approved for the Post 9/11 GI Bill, which provides veterans with educational assistance. Veteran apprentices have access to a tax-free monthly housing stipend while enrolled. These benefits make it easier for veterans to work in restaurants, enroll in apprenticeship, and immediately advance in their careers.
