The national unemployment rate for post-9/11 military veterans varies between 13 and 20 percent, about double the national average.
We want to reverse this trend.
And we can do it with your help.
Veterans today are experiencing unprecedented transition challenges due to joblessness, homelessness and health concerns. Veterans Green Force was created to bridge the gap for veterans who recently exited the military and are seeking a successful transition to the civilian workforce.
Boots on the Ground: One Veteran at a Time
Veterans Green Jobs is building a nationwide outreach, recruitment and placement program that matches military veterans with green sector jobs and training. It was designed to help combat the high rates of unemployment among former military servicemen and women.
As the cornerstone of the Veterans Green Jobs mission, the Veterans Green Force program matches veterans’ military experience and career interests to the skills needed by green sector employers, links them to training and educational programs to provide them with skills in key subject areas, and connects them with available jobs.
Having already trained and placed hundreds of veterans in outdoor conservation and home energy efficiency jobs since 2009, Veterans Green Jobs is uniquely suited to do this work. We are the only agency that focuses exclusively on connecting veterans with employment in the green jobs sector.
We aim to connect with 1,000 veterans and place 300 of them in jobs in two years.
To make Veterans Green Force successful, we are building partnerships with private sector businesses, government agencies, training organizations and nonprofits who want to join us in this mission. Together, our ultimate metric of success will be the number of veterans we place in green sector jobs.
With initial seed funding from the Call of Duty Endowment and additional financial support from the Walmart Foundation, Veterans Green Force is in development. We have already signed several memorandums of understanding with organizations that want to support veterans – and the interest grows every day as more learn about our mission.
