Fedcap Rehabilitation Services, Inc.
A. Executive Summary
This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of Veterans and Their Families. Ten AmeriCorps members who are preferably but not required to be veterans from past conflicts, will be engaged to developing curriculum, design of situational testing, training recently returning veterans in business sectors where we know that employment opportunities exist and in recruiting 30 Americorp volunteers to conduct outreach in the Bronx to returning veterans and their families. They will also assist returning veterans in the critical translation of military experiences to the current employment market. Training will occur through the Fedcap nationally recognized Career Design School that is funded under the GI Bill. At the end of the three years we anticipate 300 veterans and their families will have received supportive services and 200 veterans will have completed educational course work resulting in licensing and/or credentials. The CNCS investment of $133,000 per year will be matched with 67,840.
