VETERAN & SPOUSE EMPLOYMENT

Known as “Military City, USA,” San Antonio plays an essential role in the health and wealth of our Nation.  Unfortunately, the unemployment rate of military veterans in our city is among the highest in our nation.

 

#10000Strong decided to help resolve the issue by:

  • Researching the problem to include reviewing the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring our Heroes 2016 Veterans in the Workplace report.
  • Reaching out to obtain perspectives from city government officials, local businesses and organizations, transitioning military and veterans, our Champions, and others.
  • Creating a community-wide collaborative effort to create improvements and positive change

We discovered several misperceptions that could be easily solved by working together with the shared purpose of serving those who serve.  For example, businesses owners welcomed #10000Strong military and veteran insight to comprehend unique skills and characteristics military service creates and enhances.  Transitioning military and veterans also learn adaptive strategies as they return to the non-military workforce.

 

#10000Strong has transformed ideas and discussion into action with iSERVED.  A new collaborative and technology-based platform, the program will help approved military, first responders, veterans, and family members with significantly increasing their chances to obtain employment.
