About

Veterans Green Jobs is a national nonprofit organization, and our mission is to engage, transition and connect military veterans with meaningful employment opportunities that serve our communities and environment. We are working to reverse the high unemployment trend among military veterans by linking them with training and employment opportunities in the green sector.

By equipping our nation’s former servicemen and women with transferable skills, tools and resources and connecting them with meaningful employment, we believe we will help veterans to maintain their sense of service, give back to their communities and environment, and contribute to a healthy, sustainable and secure future for people and the planet.
