Helping Veterans

 

ABOUT VETSBUILD

VetsBuild is a signature program of United Way of Long Island's Mission United that provides job training for Long Island veterans and their families. Many local veterans struggle with underemployment and finding a long-term career path that will lead to financial independence and stability. VetsBuild is designed to help unemployed and underemployed veterans improve their employment prospects and is free of charge to veterans. Upon completion, certifications may be granted, as well as connections to employment or advanced training opportunities.
 
Program Highlights:
  • Training takes place at United Way’s E3 SmartBuild Training Center, a state-of-the art facility equipped with the latest technology and equipment, to provide students with hands-on experience.
  • The multi-week course includes 10-hour entry level OSHA certification training, basic training in building science principles and weatherization, along with resume assistance, social media use, and financial literacy instruction

 

UPCOMING VETSBUILD COURSES

Future training dates are TBD. Dates will be determined by the New York State coronavirus guidelines for reopening business and education efforts. Check back for updates.
