The Glenn County OneStop has been awarded a small grant to assist VETERAN'S in moving quickly from military life into high-wage jobs and civilian careers. This project will focus on training veterans for careers in the following industries: (1) Healthcare, (2) Protective Services, (3) Installation/Maintenance, and (4) Production and Transportation. The Glenn County OneStop will be able to serve veterans who have service-connected disabilities; campaign veterans; veterans with significant barriers; as well as eligible spouses and recently-separated veterans. Recently-separated veterans will be a high priority for this project. This group is most in need of identifying transferable skills, re-training into civilian occupation areas, and assistance with job attainment and retention. For information on how to access this program, please contact Anita FitzGerald at (530) 934-1493.
