Mission:
To connect military veterans with meaningful employment opportunities that serve our communities and environment
Results:
By the end of 2011, 316 veterans experienced the great outdoors through our Outdoor Conservation(including our Wildland Firefighting), a program that puts veteran teams to work on our public lands completing conservation and stewardship projects.
Forty veterans have been directly hired by VGJ; the majority of these employees are now working in our weatherization department, which has weatherized 3,876 homes within two years.
10% of all of the clients served through our weatherization program receive field quality assurance audits from qualified State of Colorado and Department of Energy inspectors. We also receive two State of Colorado administration audits per year. Veterans Green Jobs has received excellent ratings from all field and administration audits. We are currently on target to meet all of our program outputs through this program year.
