Veterans Information Technology Training Program
Location: Southern California
Working Wardrobes provides Southern California veterans with key information technology training and certification so they can secure jobs that equal or exceed their military income, access advancement opportunities, provide them with a living wage that will allow them to meet the region’s high cost of living, and build economic security for themselves and their families. This program serves the more vulnerable veterans, including those newly transitioned, the homeless, and those at risk of homelessness, and provides entry into a career field with 40 percent projected growth from 2012 to 2022, and a 6.2 percent increase in average wages in 2015 alone. The BWF investment will train, certify and facilitate IT employment for 18 post-9/11 veterans.
