Helmets to Hardhats is administered by the Center for Military Recruitment, Assessment and Veterans Employment (CMRAVE), a joint labor-management committee created by the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO, and several national construction industry employer associations. This committee is made up of 32 individuals representing both management and labor in a collaboration to serve the needs of all in our industry. Outside of CMRAVE, we have our H2H Executive Committee made up of 4 individuals who guide our program to success while our Executive Director ensures that those guided collaborations play out day to day.
