VETERANS

We are honored to assist our Veterans to find jobs, and to offer counseling and direction to assist them in their career transition efforts. Job development, career counseling and supportive services are provided. Please review program details below.

We encourage all Veterans – especially OIF, OEF and OND – and those who expect to discharge in the near future, to connect with us and also visit the Delaware County Veterans' Affairs office for links to helpful resources.

Jobs for Veterans State Grants (JVSG)

This program funds Disabled Veterans’ Outreach Program (DVOP) and Local Veterans’ Employment Representative (LVER) staff in PA CareerLink® offices. DVOPs work with veterans with significant barriers to employment, and LVERs work with employers to showcase qualified veterans for job openings. For more information, email Norman Moore nomoore@pa.gov
