Blue Star Families

There’s an enormous opportunity to train military spouses to succeed in software jobs that can be done from almost anywhere in the world. The software industry has more jobs than it can fill—and the availability of tech jobs is greatly outpacing the supply of talent.

Active duty military spouses face a 24% unemployment rate. Military families relocate 10 times more often than civilian families, making it difficult for spouses to keep their employment.

Software.org has teamed up with Blue Star Families to support opportunities for military spouses to help fill the nearly 1.3 million open tech jobs across the country.

Blue Star Families builds communities that support military families. Since its inception in 2009, Blue Star Families has engaged tens of thousands of volunteers and serves more than 1.5 million military family members. With Blue Star Families, military families can find answers to their challenges anywhere they are. For more information, visit bluestarfam.org.
