Thank you ABC7 for featuring U.S.VETS Career Network last Friday at your news network! The segment was under the ABC7 Salutes series, which highlights local organizations that are making a difference in the veteran communities
We discussed the Veteran Hiring Initiative behind Los Angeles Unified School District ‘s new Troop’s To Education program.
The Troops to Education program at LAUSD fast-tracks veteran applicants so that they can be hired as substitute teachers in as little as 2 weeks. The program also focuses on the full time teacher track, and offers a unique District Intern program, which enlists students completing their education in teaching to earn income while they are gaining hours, and complete a $10,000 teaching credential for free.
U.S.VETS Career Networks works with the veteran candidates along every step of the LAUSD hiring process, for the full life cycle recruitment of veteran talent, and even one-year post-placement for supportive services and professional development opportunities. The total list of services offered in the LAUSD – U.S.VETS Career Network Partnership are below:
- CBEST Testing Fee (2nd test)
- Application Assistance
- Interview Preparation
- Interview Scheduling
- Certificate of Clearance (COC) Fee Assistance
- Final Credential Fee Assistance
Congratulations Puentes Juan on hiring 104 veterans since the programs inception!
