Currently, Leave No Veteran Behind has multiple contracts providing safety related services in the Chicagoland area. Part of our training regimen includes 20 hours of unarmed security training to Veterans selected in our transitional employment program. This training allows Veterans to receive their Permanent Employment Registration Card (PERC). This card allows the Veteran to work in security related fields anywhere in the state of Illinois.
This training provides our Veteran clients the ability to find flexible employment while they search for long-term employment. Safety services is a natural fit for the skills that Veterans learned in the military. The goal of this training, however, is to primarily provide an unemployed Veteran an opportunity for quick employment that will help stabilize their financial situation or to provided added income while they receive an education in their field of interest. If a Veteran is interested in safety/security as a career, Leave No Veteran Behind has established relationships with firms that will provide training and long-term employment opportunities as well.
Here are some of the topics covered in our training:
Whether through volunteering, becoming a community partner, or simply donating, there are many ways to help us accomplish our mission.
