Launched in 2013, the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative (VEI), supported by the NVTC Foundation, connects Veterans and military spouses to employment, internship, apprenticeship and educational opportunities and provides support to member companies in their efforts to recruit, hire, train and retain qualified Veteran and military spouse employees. The VEI is grateful to its committed VEI Task Force Members, engaged NVTC member companies and numerous partner organizations for their continued support of the program.
