THE STORY:

BREVARD WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT BOARD INC wrote -

CAREERSOURCE BREVARD, formerly Brevard Workforce, is asking for your help in supporting our local soldiers. Military spouses and older children truly want to become employed and help their families, yet they face so many challenges. Your donation will help provide specialized training, cover the cost of a certificate, and help prepare them for work.

In fact, military spouses experience a much higher unemployment rate than their civilian counterparts at 30%!

Funds raised through JumpStart Military Families will allow Career Source Brevard to cover the costs of special short-term training in a demand skill. This will enable spouses to more quickly become employed in each new location they may land. We will also be able to cover the cost of a certification or license (needed at each new location.) Childcare costs can also be covered and special Entrepreneur training will be offered to help those interested in starting a portable business of their own. 

JSMF will help up to 30 older teen and young adult dependents with a weeklong camp to provide preparatory services they often miss due to moving around from base to base. They will learn about financial literacy and budgeting, personality assessments, life application tools, dressing for success, how to make a good “First Impression,” networking, time management, resume development and gain experience interviewing through mock interviews with area business leaders. The  take away from this experience will prepare them for the rest of their lives and make them an asset to any organization and community in which they live.

Please consider a small donation and then share the information with others who care about military families. Thank you.
