Project RELO is a Veterans services 501c3 organization that enables organizations to realize a competitive advantage by hiring US Military Veterans. We work with employers to ensure they are maximizing their hiring investments, while also working with applicants and employees to solidify their preparation, on-boarding and career trajectories.
Together, this combination changes the accepted paradigm of hiring US Veterans simply because it is the right thing to do, to hiring Veterans because it is a strategic business imperative.
% of Executives that said Project RELO is the best leadership training available
Project RELO is able to serve veterans free of charge due to the financial support we receive from public and private donations. These donations assist us in sustaining our work to educate business leaders on the value and advantages of veteran talent. We do not receive any government funding. To continue our commitment to accountability and 100% transparency, we provide financial statements, and other documents for public view here.
Project RELO is one of the highest rated veteran non-profit organizations having earned the GuidStar Platinum Seal of Transparency, a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity with an A+ Rating, and a five star charity on GreatNonProfits.com.
You have questions, we have answers
What do I need to pack?
With the weather constantly changing in northern Michigan, we provide numerous packing lists to accommodate each person. There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear. When you enlist on a mission, you will be provided with a packing list. If you forget something, we always have extra gear to issue.
Are the missions physical?
While there is a level of physicality on the missions, there is no physical requirement. We have controls in place for everybody of every physical level. Whether you run marathons or you just retired from your second career, you will be able to complete a Project RELO mission
Where are the missions conducted?
A majority of the missions are conducted on Camp Grayling in Grayling, MI. There are times when the missions are at other bases, so keep a look out on our Situation Report page.
Can I bring my entire team?
Absolutely!!! What better way to do professional development and team building than to accomplish a military style mission as one!
What is the typical time commitment for a mission?
Project RELO missions are 72 hours in length. The way it is broken down is that day zero is a travel day and we ask that you arrive no later than 1700 hrs (5:00pm) EST that day where lodging is provided. You will then spend two nights in the field, and will depart around 1200 hrs EST on day 3.
I am ready to join a mission, How do I do that?

I don’t have time to come on a mission, but still want to hire veterans. Can I still be involved in Project RELO?
