Swords to Plowshares’ Combat to Community Training is a series of cultural competency curricula developed by our Institute for Veteran Policy for community partners, including human resource specialists, clinicians, attorneys, law enforcement personnel, faith based communities and others, to address the challenges veterans face re-integrating into the community and the unique training and skill sets they acquire in service.
Creating employment initiatives for veterans is more than a patriotic endeavor or a charitable cause. It’s simple: hiring veterans is good for business.
