New Indiana Program Trains Veterans for the Workforce

Making a future for Indiana's returning soldiers.
Making a future for Indiana's returning soldiers. Today, Lieutennant Governor Sue Ellspermann unveils the program designed to help military service members get jobs. It's called "Get Skills to Work."

The program gets soldiers into Ivy Tech manufacturing programs, so they can have the experience and skills they need for manufacturing jobs.

"Sometimes it's just as simple as transferring the skill set they had in the military that doesn't equate to an equal job here in our state," said Ellspermann. "Sometimes they may be young employee and not really have a job before they went into the military."

The program is funded through the service member's benefits or the Alcoa Foundation. The first classes start in January.
