A Comparison Study of Onward to Opportunity (O2O) Utilizing a Matched Comparison Group from The Veterans Metrics Initiative (TVMI)

The Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness at Penn State collaborated with Syracuse University’s D’Aniello Institute for Veterans and Military Families to assess the impact of the Onward to Opportunity (O2O) program. The team implemented a quasi-experimental study design to compare a group of O2O program participants to a demographically similar group of transitioning service members from The Veterans Metrics Initiative (TVMI) who did not participate in employment programs. This report describes the data harmonization of the O2O and TVMI samples and the results from the analysis. The process resulted in the ability to examine outcomes using a propensity-matched comparison group from the TVMI sample and the results of this analytic sample.
