Veterans Ambassadors Program

Thank you for volunteering to be a Veterans Ambassador! Through awareness and education, HR professionals, people managers, and business leaders can make a positive impact on the employment challenges faced by veterans, military spouses, caregivers. With your efforts as an Ambassador, you will become force multipliers in educating and inspiring employers in your community to understand the value the military community brings to the civilian workforce and the best practices to attract, hire and retain these high-potential labor forces. By asking the people you train to hire at least one member of the military community, YOU will be part of our vision of a world of work that works for all. 

This is a private webpage for Ambassadors to access resources. Please do not share this page with those outside of the Ambassador program.  

The Ambassador program was made possible thanks to a generous grant from The USAA Foundation.
