The Glenn County OneStop (now known as the America'sJobCenter of California) has been awarded a small grant to assist VETERANS in moving quickly from military life into high-wage jobs and civilian careers. This project will focus on training veterans for careers in the following industries: (1) Healthcare, (2) Protective Services, (3) Installation/Maintenance, and (4) Production and Transportation. The Glenn County America'sJobCenter of California will be able to serve veterans who have service-connected disabilities; campaign veterans; veterans with significant barriers; as well as eligible spouses and recently-separated veterans. Recently separated veterans will be a high priority for this project. This group is most in need of identifying transferable skills, retraining into civilian occupation areas, and assistance with job attainment and retention. For information on how to access this program, please contact Anita FitzGerald at (530) 934-1493.
