SBD Awarded Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Certification
Vienna, Va. – July 1, 2019 – SBD announced that it is now an Official V3 Certified Company. V3 stands for the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program, a part of the Virginia Transition Assistance Program (VTAP). VTAP’s mission is to “Assess, coordinate, and disseminate opportunities for members of the armed forces and their spouses transitioning from military to civilian life by providing a pathway to employment, education, and entrepreneurship.”
According to V3’s website, “The V3 Program is an official Commonwealth of Virginia Program, authorized under the Code of Virginia (§ 2.2-2001.2). It is organized under the directorate of Veterans Education, Training, and Employment (VETE), within the Virginia Department of Veterans Services (DVS), an agency of the Secretary of Veterans and Defense Affairs.” Its goal is to increase employment opportunities and promote economic development by educating and training organizations in veteran workforce best practices.
Virginia has the fastest growing veteran population in the country. It ranks 7th in the nation in total Veteran population and 4th in Veteran working-age population. Launched in June 2012, the V3 Program is an Economic Development Initiative to work with Virginia-based companies to increase Military Veteran hiring. To date, more than 33,000 veterans have been hired through this program, with a future goal of hiring 60,000+.
As a V3-Certified organization, SBD gains direct access to V3/VTAP Recruiting Days, Partner Events, Job Fairs, Transition Connections, and more. We look forward to working with the Commonwealth of Virginia as a V3 Certified employer.
