I have worked as a volunteer for Combat Veterans to Careers for approximately two years. Personally, I have found the organization to be totally focused on helping veterans make a successful transition from active military service to civilian life. It has been extremely rewarding to see veterans' lives transformed into productive civilian careers. The staff are totally committed to responding to the diverse needs of the veterans they serve. Virtually all funds are expended directly into the service delivery system. The program is held in high esteem not only by the veterans it serves, but; also by the the surrounding community which often provides fund raising efforts. In a word, Combat Vererans to Careers is as top notch program with an extremely dedicated effort toward meeting its mission of successfully transitioning veterans back into civilian life. It is a privledge and honor to be a volunteer at Combat Veterans to Careers.
Great organization, doing a lot of good.
CVtC is working very hard and is very successful, they have my support.
This is a great organization, they have helped my grandson in so many ways.
Being a volunteer, I see first-hand the wonderful work this organization does for combat veterans and their families. It's fantastic to see the veterans reenter civilian venues such as school and work with such success.
I was looking for something to do with Veterans and came upon CVC. Love how they help veterans to find jobs, housing and anything else they need. our veterans deserve the best and CVC gives them a fighting chance.
I am a retired Army Colonel and was looking for a worthwhile non profit organization to volunteer with, After a fair amount of research I found CVC and had to go no further.
CVC is a no nonsense organization that provides the resources for combat veterans to get an education in one of several fields which are connected to employment here in central Florida upon graduation. The basic criteria following selection is that the veteran works while pursuing his education, interfaces with the community, and supports events sponsored by CVC.
All of this is accomplished by the dedicated efforts of the leadership and a band of volunteers and with a record to date of using approximately 90% for funds collected on the Program.
I'm proud to be part of this effort!
CVC helps veterans every step of the way. David Booth and his team is full of great information and helps with the whole process of transitioning out of a military career to a civilian career. It is more challenging then it seems, I am very grateful for them leading my combat vet in the right direction.
This program brought my son back to me! I had to watch this AMAZING kid transition from Military to Civillian life and struggle for direction which for a mother, is debilitating. CVC gave him so much more than just finding him a job, they gave him his pride and confidence. The program holds its veterans accountable which in my experience is so important! I strongly encourage anyone that can help by donating time or money to do so, and get to know some wonderful individuals!
I have been a volunteer with CVC since its inception and it has been a very positive experience. I have had the oportunity to interact with many the veterans that are in the program and to watch them succeed in the program is proof positve that the system works. David Booth has so much passion in the program that you can bet he will not let it fail and it is only going to get better.
The transition from military to civilian life defiantly has a huge gap and combat veterans helps to bridge that gap.
As a young veteran, Combat Veterans to Careers has helped with my transition from active duty to civilian life tremendously. They have the right approach in helping new vets transition…. 360 degrees. Its not just help in resume writing or finding a place to stay. David Booth and his team are with you every step to ensure you are on the right track for success.
This organization is amazing! They are the real deal, helping and making a difference in our countries service members. I love that they are part of the R4 Alliance and the Patriot Parade, honoring our Fallen to support our living. Great Stuff.
I am so thankful for our military, past, present and future, for all they do for us and have done. They have faced such challenges and this organization offers wonderful opportunities for their transition to civilian life. This organization, with its leaders and volunteers, help alter obstacles for the veterans and their families into positive steps to affect future change in their lives. I am a proud volunteer and supporter of this group.
As a soldier trying to transition back into civilian life with a family of 4 is very hard. My military experience didn't transition well into a civilian career, so finding CVC was a blessing. I talked with David over a period of a few weeks and decided to move my family 600 miles to begin in the program. CVC helped me enroll into school to begin training for a new career, found housing for my family, even had employment available when i arrived. I've been in the CVC program now for a month and couldn't be any impressed. I have to say thank you to everyone at CVC for helping not only me but many other veterans and their families. God bless CVC and god bless America.
Volunteering and interning for CVC has shown me exactly what our military veterans are facing when they get out or retire. This organization opens so many doors for veterans and their families that would not be available to them otherwise. The volunteers, staff and veterans at CVC are not just other volunteers or staff members or other veterans, they are all apart of my CVC family.
Volunteering for CVC has given me a new perspective on what our nation's veterans face as they are transitioning out of the military, in addition to giving me the ability and opportunity to feel as though I am actually helping to make a long-term difference in their lives. It's been rewarding getting to watch the CVC family grow and be able to be apart of something, as well as watch the organization touch lives of our Veterans!
I retired in July of 2011 after serving 28 years in the US Coast Guard. Serving part of my career as an instructor in the LE field as well as deploying worldwide in many joint military deployments, I was surprised how difficult finding a career after the military. I had to take contract work overseas once again leaving my family for more than a year and the stress took its toll on us all. In January of this year after email conversations with David Booth from overseas, I returned to the US and began to put in the place the plan he and I discussed for me to begin my own business. I have been accepted into EBV at Syracuse University and have been working over the past few weeks on the business we had discussed. The opportunity to once again look forward to getting up and going to work is incredible but the opportunity to be home with my family and know that I will be able to continue to provide for them is priceless. I cannot thank CVC enough for the impact they have had in helping me feel like I finally have a career that provides me the same sense of satisfaction as I had when I wore when I was serving!
I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such an Amazing, Life Changing Organization!
I have been volunteering with various organizations over the last 25 years and I have never felt the connection I do and have the commitment I have as much as I do with CVC. I feel valued and like I am making a difference. To be able to work with the participants in the program is priceless! I am truly seeing lives change before my eyes.
Hello, My name is Mark Cosby, and I have been affiliated with Combat Veterans To Careers or (CVTC) for the past 3 years it is with great pleasure that I write this review. CVTC is the first nonprofit that takes a holistic approach to the returning combat veteran ensuring their peace of mind by offering one of a kind care. What do I mean by that? It offers 360 degrees of assistance to the service member and family. Because CVTC understands the whole family concept, The Spouse is immediately assisted in finding gainful employment, the Children are placed in Schools upon arrival, the family is placed in a safe and comfortable apartment, and if needed a vehicle is provided to ensure reliable transportation.
Now on to the Veteran! They are enrolled in a specified School designed to ensure their success, to my knowledge there is a Golf Course Maintenance program, Firefighting Academy, and the most recent addition Aviation Maintenance. As this organization continues to grow more programs and curriculums are sure to follow. I endorse this organization whole hartedly.
I have been volunteering for this organization for the past 2 years. It truly is an organization that cares about the combat veteran and his or her entire family. I have seen veterans make a 180 turn in their life. The veterans and their families are helped with education, careers, VA benefits, financial counseling and much more. 98% of the money donated to Combat Veterans to Careers goes directly to the veterans. The organization has one paid employee and over 300 volunteers.
