WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor today announced its Veterans’ Employment and Training Service has signed a memorandum of understanding with five new partners that have agreed to support VETS’ Employment Navigator and Partnership Pilot. With the additions, there are now 38 ENPP partners.
The ENPP provides one-on-one career assistance to transitioning service members and their spouses at select military installations worldwide. The initiative helps to enhance classroom instruction provided by the department’s Transition Assistance Program.
The new ENPP partners are Shift.org Inc in San Francisco and VETS-Beyond the Uniform in Carlsbad, California; Troops2Logistics.org in Traverse City, Michigan; G.I. Jobs in Moon Township, Pennsylvania; and HireMilitary in Fairfax, Virginia.
Partner organizations will support the pilot with apprenticeship opportunities, hiring events, digital matching of skills and experience, employment mentorship and networking. These organizations also committed to employing veterans and offering employment referrals and placement, workforce training and wrap-around service within communities for additional support services.
Employment Navigators are located at select U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force installations in the U.S. and overseas, and provide personalized employment assistance to transitioning service members and their spouses. Based on an individual’s needs, Employment Navigators connect them with partner organizations for additional employment services to aid their transition both before and after separation.
