Jobs for Vets: Joining Forces to Provide Jobs for Military Families

Have you heard about the White House's Joining Forces initiative yet? The First Lady and Dr. Biden have met with military families, learned about their successes and challenges, and made it their priority to support them. Joining Forces is a comprehensive national initiative to mobilize all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned.

Joining Forces:

  • Brings attention to the unique needs and strength of America’s military families. 
  • Inspires, educates, and sparks action from all sectors of our society – citizens, communities, businesses, non-profits, faith based institutions, philanthropic organizations, and government - to ensure veterans and military families have the opportunities, resources, and support they have earned.
  • Showcases the skills, experience, and dedication of America’s veterans and military spouses to strengthen our nation’s communities.
  • Creates greater connections between the American public and the military.

In this ongoing effort, they’re highlighting issues that are of special importance to the military families they have met with across the country, including the areas of employment, education, and wellness.
