Edge4Vets will announce the collaboration with Goodwill’s Operation: GoodJobs during an event to kick-off its fall workshop series on Friday, Oct 24 from 10am to 1pm on the Intrepid Museum, 12 ave and 46 St.
Edge4Vets is a workshop series that teaches U.S. veterans how to translate their military skills into tools for the civilian workplace.
Developed by the Human Resiliency Institute at Fordham, Edge4Vets was launched on the Intrepid Museum three years ago. Eighty percent of the first 100 veterans who completed the course have secured jobs. Some of these veterans will return to the event at the Intrepid to offer support to veterans joining the workshop.
Goodwill’s Operation: GoodJobs provides wrap around support, including additional job readiness assistance, informational interviews, appropriate work attire and linkages to family assistance, housing and more for the vets who take the Edge4Vets workshop series. The goal is to combine Goodwill’s wrap around support with Edge4Vets jobs preparation to increase the number of veterans who succeed in finding work.
