Job Training, Certification, and placement for Veterans, First Responders, and their families. This project directly addresses the problem that our veterans have unique and valuable skills for the workforce but are increasingly unable to obtain jobs after transitioning from the military due to a lack of required private sector certifications. In 2013, the unemployment rate for Gulf War-era II veterans (9.6 percent) was higher in than the rate for nonveterans (6.8 percent). Working at the local level, this program provides Veterans, First Responders, and their families job counseling, training, placement and other services to: 1) determine specific needs of each participant; 2) provide personalized counseling and evaluations to produce individual life plans; 3) conduct lifestyles skills training; provide education and training; and 4) engage the private sector and communities to transition qualified veterans into the workforce faster.
