New Partnership to Put Young People and Military Veterans to Work
- November 27, 2012
- Colorado veterans, Colorado Youth Corps Association
CiviCore clients Colorado Youth Corps Association and the Conservation Lands Foundation celebrated the launch of a new program that will promote job opportunities for young people and military veterans.
The Veterans-Youth Conservation Corps Partnership will provide Colorado veterans and youth with employment and job training opportunities while working to restore and maintain Colorado’s public lands. Also involved in the public-private collaboration is the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), conservation corps, private industry and veterans groups.
At the recent kickoff celebration in Denver, Governor John Hickenlooper addressed the crowd.
“When you take Colorado youth corps, tie them in with veterans, mix that with the Bureau of Land Management staff that’s in Colorado, then you begin to get a pretty rich soup. Mix in some private industry funders to provide resources or donations, add the Conservation Lands Foundation. Now it’s seasoned, now it’s got heat and energy.”
CiviCore congratulates everyone involved in this collaboration!
