Resources for Supporting Veterans in Education and the Workforce

November 11th is Veterans' Day.  In honor of the men and women who have served in a branch of the U.S. military, the U.S. Department of Labor shared the following recent statistics on Veterans' employment status.

According to a March 2020 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics news release, in August 2019 there were 4.7 million veterans, 25% of whom had a service-connected disability.  Their unemployment rate was 4.8%, with a 47.5% labor force participation rate.

The following resources are provided to increase awareness of employment support for Veterans and those who support them in their education, training, and civilian employment needs.

What other resources and supports have you found useful in working with Veterans in your adult education programs?  Share your successes with us as we honor the knowledge, skills, and abilities they bring to our classrooms, jobs, and society.
