Veterans Transition Support (VTS) is an All-Volunteer San Diego and Orange County California based 501(c)(3) Nonprofit created in 2014 to help active duty service members and veterans bridge the gap between military service and civilian life through job training and one-on-one mentoring in career development, education planning and obtaining veteran benefits to launch their next career and prevent veteran suicide, homelessness, unemployment, and family disintegration. The Veterans Transition Support “Military Transition Training Program” provides no cost professional certification courses and transition resource briefs at the Wounded Warrior Battalion on Camp Pendleton, in San Diego and in San Marcos. Partnerships with the Easter Seals Bob Hope Veterans Support Program and the VetCTAP veteran career management program ensures that all program participants who register for one-on-one assistance are provided with individualized employment support and assistance with resume writing, interviewing techniques, and networking at no cost to the veteran.
Veterans Transition Support’s (VTS) mission is to bridge the gap between the civilian workforce and our transitioning military service members and veterans before they experience transition road-blocks. VTS ensures our military service members reintegrate back into civilian life and the civilian workforce into careers suitable for their level of military experience and economic sustainability. This is achieved by providing service members with effective tools to translate their military experience into recognizable civilian job skills, civilian certifications to transfer military experience into its civilian counterpart, identifying needed training to fill skill gaps and one on one mentoring in four critical areas required to sustain a successful transition: Career Development, Cultural Adaptation, Obtaining VA Benefits and Education Planning. The VTS goal is to seamlessly transition all military personnel who enter the Veterans Transition Support program prior to leaving military service through individual mentoring, career management, counseling, and weekend and evening programs that close skill gaps and provide networking opportunities with civilian hiring managers.
VTS has proven with our successful testimonies, that reaching out to Service-members BEFORE they leave the service gives them a higher chance of success and a small chance of failure. Veterans Transition support fills the gaps often causing transition failures. We have proven that helping a Veteran BEFORE they fail by understanding the key areas that effect Veterans as they transition and focusing in Career Development, obtaining Veterans Benefits, Education Planning, and Cultural Adaptation in a one on one setting. We have proven that a Non profit can be fiscally responsible and meet the needs of a community and help those that depend on our help
Thank you, My transition would not have been nearly as successful had I not ran into you, Kathy and the organization. I have been nothing but successful during my transition and I’ve only been out about 7 months. Now the company I work for is having me interview for a regional manager position. I just worked off the notes I took and made it happen but that would not have been possible without you and VTS.
Again from the bottom of my heart I really do thank you.
