6.13 Veteran Employment Programs: Evidence-Based Practices

Veterans have particular barriers and difficulties to overcome in today’s changing job market, but they also have a lot to offer prospective employers. This workshop will focus on the unique skills, assets, and characteristics that veterans bring to the workplace and the barriers and, in some instances, discrimination that veterans face. New solutions and program approaches, in particular the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Department of Labor grants and programs that are focused on veteran employment will be covered.
