Mission Statement

Veterans Transition Support closes the gap between military service and civilian life through training to fill skill gaps and one-on-one mentoring in the four critical areas required to sustain a successful transition: Career Development, Cultural Adaptation, Obtaining Veterans Benefits and Education Planning.

Description

The main goal of VTS is to prevent veteran suicide, veteran homelessness, veteran unemployment and family disintegration by offering veterans to mentor, train, provide peer support and build effective career development and education plans for other veterans to ensure they succeed when they reintegrate back into civilian society and the workforce. VTS is designed to benefit veterans, military personnel and military spouses of all branches of service during their last 6 to 12 months of service and it is executed by veterans who volunteer to instruct a series of courses that prepare veterans for their reintegration and VA Work Study interns who provide individualized peer support, build transition plans and help veterans translate their military experience into civilian language on resumes. Veteran business leaders attend as guest speakers to talk about their companies and network with the participants.
