IAVA in The JobRaising Challenge
Posted by IAVA Staff on February 8
IAVA is proud to be involved with The JobRaising Challenge. Put on by The Huffington Post and the Skoll Foundation, the project aims to put Americans back to work by donating $250,000 to nonprofits committed to ending the jobs crisis. Learn more here.
With new veteran unemployment so unacceptably high, we ask that you support IAVA's efforts in the challenge by donating to us today. Check out the powerful pieces we've already posted here. From the power or partnerships to what we do on Capitol Hill to real life stories of transitions, we are highlighting our work as innovators in the space.
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 >>
