Unemployed Veterans Getting a Second Chance Thanks to Rutgers VETS Program

Unemployed Veterans Getting a Second Chance Thanks to Rutgers VETS Program

SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

NEWARK – It was a proud moment at the Willing Heart Community Care Center in Newark, where 12 local veterans graduated Saturday as the inaugural class of the Rutgers Veterans Environmental Technology and Solutions (VETS) program.

Each of the veterans had stories to share of struggle after returning from service, with limited opportunities to earn a living. When some entered the program last May, they were unemployed and had nowhere else to turn.

On Saturday, February 28, it was a time for celebration. Five of the graduates announced they were teaming up to start their own landscaping business. Others talked about returning to school to take classes in landscaping, horticulture and other specialities focusing on the training they received in the program. One even mentioned she applied to Columbia University to seek her degree.
