The Krait Foundation is a career readiness program that translates elite military service to the private sector and helps create the next generation of business and community leaders. The Krait Foundation will bridge the “readiness gap” of those serving members and their families who are transitioning from full time service to their civilian pursuits. 

An integrated program has been established that is delivered over two months, comprising of a week-long intensive course to accelerate one’s understanding of themselves, their identity and put together a plan for the pursuit of purpose and fulfilment. At the conclusion, our members will be well equipped for whatever path they decide to choose to take in their career, whether that be a career in the corporate world, being more informed and self-aware in their next role, or making a business idea come to life.
