VetWorks Americorps Job Training Info Session

  • WorkSource Central Office 30 North Webster Street Portland, OR, 97217 United States (map)

VetWorks is an AmeriCorps program specifically designed for veterans, linking employment back to the natural world.  There are two programs: one is 10-month program that teaches veterans how to steward public lands.  The other is a 12-week firefighter (level 2) training. 

Aaron from the Mt. Adams Institute will be discussing apprenticeship opportunities with the Department of Labor, employment statistics, retention, the housing situation and stipends during these programs, etc. This brief but information packed presentation will also be part of the Veteran Employment Council meeting if you’re interested in that piece of it.

No RSVP required but appreciated to help ensure enough materials and space.  See Programs in the menu for more information.
