You’ve served us, now let us serve you!
Thanks in part to a grant from the County of Los Angeles Department of Community and Senior Services Workforce Investment Act, Goodwill Southern California has established a service center dedicated solely to assisting veterans throughout Los Angeles. The Veteran Employment Program offers job training, placement and employment services and programs to thousands of American veterans, as well as their spouses and families.
Goodwill is proud to be one of the first organizations to respond to the increased need for veteran support by launching the VEP. Program Specialists, former vets themselves, are uniquely qualified to respond to and address the special needs of those men and women who have served our country and now face the challenges of reintegrating into a civilian world currently suffering massive unemployment rates.
VEP staff members offer one-on-one career counseling and access to employment preparation courses, educational and technical skills classes, and work tools; all aimed at assisting veterans find meaningful employment so that they may advance beyond their military careers and regain a sense of pride, dignity and purpose. Program Specialists match job seekers with job opportunities through targeted recruitment services and job fairs.
