MISSION & IMPACT

Dog Tag Inc. (DTI) empowers service-disabled veterans, military spouses, and caregivers to discover personal and professional fulfillment in the civilian world through an innovative business and entrepreneurship fellowship program. 

Our comprehensive and multifaceted five month fellowship enables Fellows to dip their toe back into education, gain first-hand experience in a living, breathing small business, explore a wide-variety of civilian career paths, and acquire key soft skills through Learning Labs. Wellness is a cornerstone of our program; from mindfulness to journaling, nutrition to yoga, we believe that our holistic, wellness-oriented approach allows the service-disabled veterans, military spouses, and caregivers we serve to be mentally ready to absorb the lessons and resources our program provides and lay the groundwork for their successful transition into civilian life.

Our long-term goal is for our alumni to find finding personal and professional fulfillment in the civilian world. DTI aspires that: alumni with entrepreneurial ambitions continue to work towards launching or advancing their concept; all alumni to stay in post-service jobs longer and have sustained employment/economic stability; and all alumni maintain their wellness and have sustained personal and emotional well-being. Additionally, we aim to create a “ripple effect” as individuals, organizations, and communities are positively impacted through DTI Fellows or alumni – bringing attention to – and helping address issues facing military spouse and caregiver communities.
