VJC Women Veterans Advisory Board Joins the Veterans Coalition of Glendale

Next Meeting October 15, then every third Thursday.

In order to make our Advisory Committee more efficient, productive and connected, we are joining the Veterans Coalition of Glendale. Our meetings will take place in conjunction with the Coalition every third Thursday of the month at Glendale City Hall.

On October 15th during our next coalition meeting, we will have Nathan Graeser, Community Liaison for USC’s Center for Innovation and Research for Veterans and Military families and who runs the monthly L.A. Veterans Collaborative, to share his work and vision regarding community. He will also share his desire to learn more about our coalition to incorporate into USC CIR’s research.

We will also have updates on Veterans Village and about planned events for November 11, 2015 – Veterans Day.

Women Veterans & Our Verdugo Community

Our goal is to unite community organizations such as the Verdugo Job Center, the local colleges and their veterans’ programs, veterans’ service organizations and community organizations like the YWCA to support the specific needs of women veterans returning to civilian work and life. Our success depends on women veterans themselves getting together and getting involved to determine what resources are needed and available for their job searches. This will be about communicating, sharing and working together to help insure that every female veteran finds the help she needs to 1. land a job that meets her needs 2. find assistance in balancing work and life 3. receive job training that is available to make her job-ready.

Who we are

This is a new site for women veterans in Los Angeles County. The Verdugo Job Center, Glendale YWCA and Verdugo Wellness Center have assembled a military women advisory board to facilitate events, meetups, resources for military women. We have resources to offer job training, career counseling and work-life support. But most important, all of this will be an opportunity for women who have served, or are serving, in our military to connect with each other and help each other navigate the worlds of work, health and life.
