IAVA and Fullbridge Launch First Veterans Business Immersion Program
Posted by Christina Kim on January 3
In November 2012, IAVA and the Fullbridge Program launched a new partnership to give Iraq and Afghanistan veterans the opportunity to apply for an exclusive Fullbridge Program for veterans. With an overwhelming number of applications from qualified veterans around the country, ten IAVA member veterans were selected for this all-expenses paid, intensive three-week business and entrepreneurship training course.
As we kick off the new year, we're also kicking off the program! We'll be bringing you regular updates from the veterans themselves as they reflect on their experiences, challenges, and successes in the program.
Check out what IAVA's Chief of Staff Derek Bennett has to say on launch day:
In just the last year, IAVA has connected hundreds of veterans with employers through innovative career fairs, helped over 10,000 veterans go to college on the New GI Bill, and provided mental health support to over 50,000 veterans—all at no cost to Member Veterans. Programs like these are only made possible through your generous support. Fight for those who fought for us and help us keep these resources and benefits completely free for new veterans and their families. DONATE >>
