Troops to Teachers (TTT)

Troops to Teachers (TTT) was established in 1993 to assist transitioning Service members and Veterans in beginning new careers as K-12 school teachers in public, charter, and Bureau of Indian Affairs schools. The program provides counseling and referral services for participants to help them meet education and licensing requirements to teach and subsequently helps them secure a teaching position. Since 1993, more than 100,000 Veterans have successfully transitioned to a career in education.

Since inception, oversight and funding have been shared between the Departments of Defense and Education. The National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2013 transferred program policy funding and oversight responsibilities back to the Department of Defense. The Troops to Teachers National Office, located within DANTES, the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support , is responsible for day-to-day operations and management of the program.

The TTT program awarded grants to 31 states.

Effective October 1, 2020: Application access is currently unavailable.

Due to the uncertain FY21 budget, Troops to Teachers Program registrations are not being accepted at this time. Current program participants can continue to access and update their records via Jobs2Teach.
