Upstate Warrior Solution
Recently, I have conducted workshops under the title "Career Transition Services" for the Upstate Warrior Solution. I've begun assisting military personnel with the career transition skills they need to transition from military life.
Upstate Warrior Solution is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that CONNECTS warriors and their families to resources and opportunities, LEADS them through the process of self-empowerment, and INSPIRES the community to embrace local warriors and their families as valued neighbors and friends.
"Van and I have worked together for almost six months, where he serves as a military-to-civilian transition coach/mentor for Upstate Warrior Solution's Fellowship Program. He has volunteered over 40 hours of his time, traveled all over the Upstate, and met with our fellows, individually, without hesitation. Van has consistently proven himself as a valuable resource for employment services through his hard work and dedication to the job. He has gained the trust of the UWS staff and of our veterans with a passion to serve that is second to none. Van is a talented, hard-working, and self-driven individual who will go above and beyond to serve others. Without question, Van has accomplished more with his time than any other volunteer in the UWS Fellowship Program."
"Highly recommend Van for anyone searching for a job, especially veterans! Van was very knowledgeable and competent because of his background and life circumstances. I definitely have a lot more knowledge and skills, because of his course, that I will use in the job hunt process."
