Veterans Employment Trajectory (VET) Initiative: Opportunity for Student Veterans

About this event

Are you a U.S. military veteran in college, wondering about your next steps? Get ready to jump-start your civilian career this summer in a fully funded, 9-week internship and career development program in Washington, D.C.

In this 45-minute webinar on Tuesday, January 18, 2-2:45 p.m. (EST), The Washington Center's program manager Kyle Berman will present an overview of the program. You'll also hear from 2021 VET Initiative alum Christopher Alora, who is a U.S. Army Veteran and University of Southern California alum. You'll get a chance to ask Chris and Kyle questions during the live Q&A.

The Veterans Employment Trajectory (VET) Initiative helps U.S. Veterans in college learn how their military experience and skills translate to a civilian job and discover what their career niche may be. Students in this program develop key skills such as self-marketing, networking, communication, conflict resolution, and more.

The costs of the program and housing in Washington, D.C. are fully funded by the Prudential Foundation (a value of $14,000 per student). Also, each student in the program receives $2,250 from The Washington Center to help with additional expenses during the nine weeks.

The application process is selective – so be sure to join us for this webinar to learn more about the program and to get answers to your questions.

The deadline to apply for the summer 2022 program is Feb 1, 2022. You can also learn more and apply at twc.edu/veterans.

This webinar will be recorded so all registrants will have access to the on-demand recording.
