EMPOWER

Tools, information, and resources necessary to build confidence and thrive in a remote career.

Whether you call it a wing or a platoon, everyone needs a squad – they’re the people who share your mission and have your back. Echo Three Foundation is a global community that connects military spouses and veterans with the right resources to create their own personal success in their own time. Meaningful employment provides military professionals (MilPros) with a greater sense of purpose and improves quality of life for the individual, their service member, and their family.

EDUCATE

Free training to become immediately qualified for high-demand careers at their own pace from home.

Perfect for millennial and seasoned military spouses alike, our unique web-based course library combines self-paced, computer-based training with live, interactive, and recorded webinars. Echo Three Foundation offers training for real-world skills that can’t be found in a traditional classroom. MilPros can learn skills for high-demand careers like proposal writing, government procurement, and marketing, and even formal certifications from today’s tech leaders – for free!

EMPLOY

Place individuals with real, meaningful careers in an ever-growing field of professions working remotely.

Military spouses are educated and want to work, but face unique barriers to employment. From frequent moves to raising a military family to surviving deployments, we understand the unique challenges military spouses and veterans face because we’ve experienced it too. This is why we’re so passionate about creating solutions that make an impact! With the freedom to work remotely, MilPros can continuously advance in their careers without constantly changing jobs each time they need to relocate.

As a former military spouse and single mother of two, I understand the challenges that spouses and families endure. Plenty of organizations offer lists of resources for military spouses and veterans, but Echo Three is a complete, life-changing program.

As newlyweds, my husband and I wanted to find the best balance for us right off the bat. Working from home gives us the flexibility to spend more quality time together between deployments, trainings, and missions.

Michele Atkinson

Founder, Board President

US Air Force Spouse
Finding a good job as a military spouse was such a struggle that the best choice for my family was to create my own businesses. Military spouses are highly educated, motivated individuals and incredible employees. Echo Three programs convert potential into empowerment.

My goal is for other military spouses to never have to question their place in the world outside of their family and to have the opportunity to feel empowered in their career.
