Raytheon Salutes our Servicemen and Women
At Raytheon, we embrace our responsibility to give back to the brave men and women who have served their country and to advocate for families who have sacrificed to sustain them. Whether committing to ensuring the safety of active duty personnel, supporting returning veterans transition to civilian life or inspiring our military families to see the endless possibilities ahead, Raytheon is committed to driving economic prosperity and security for our military personnel and our nation and allies.
Raytheon partners with organizations committed to empowering military families and veterans through education with programs and mentoring to help service members and their families reach their goals. These partners include:
- Boys & Girls Clubs of America – A partnership to support military families and provide their children with a foundation in science, technology and engineering to help inspire them to be the next generation of innovators. Boys & Girls Clubs are a constant presence in the life of a military child, with a BGCA-affiliated youth center on nearly every U.S. military installation and in communities with a strong military presence. The organization partners with every branch of the U.S. military serving nearly half a million school-age military youth.
- Student Veterans of America – A partnership that enables and empowers student veterans to reach their goals for higher education. The organization is the world's largest network of student veteran groups with more than 1,100 chapters in all 50 states and four countries, providing a peer support network that is critical to a veteran's successful transition to academic life.
- Wounded Warrior Project – A partnership that provides support, mentorship, career guidance and opportunities to our nation's heroes. The organization's Transition Training Academy provides information technology training to help students compete in the job market, helping nearly 4,000 injured service members and their caregivers.
Raytheon's employees share this passion and are committed to donating their time and resources to programs that support military families and veterans like mentoring and training in classrooms, afterschool programs and professional workshops. These efforts includes the Fund in Support of our Troops, an employee-driven fund to help meet the needs of American troops in all military branches and their families through nine specific organizations.
