Media, PA – Community Action Agency of Delaware County, Inc. (CAADC) has been funded by Boeing for its new Veteran Employment Project.  The Veteran Employment Project will place Veterans in a paid work experience opportunity with the goal of locating a career, learning valuable skills and finding a job with a living wage.

However, CAADC is still seeking businesses interested in helping to employ Veterans and partner along with CAADC on this valuable project.  While the project will pay their wages initially, CAADC is hoping for employment partners that are interested in possibly hiring the Veterans permanently and will provide positions with a career pathway.

Slots for Veterans for this project are limited but there are still some available.  Interested Veterans should be very motivated and looking for full-time employment.

Edward T. Coleman, CAADC CEO, stated “Boeing is helping our local Veterans to find employment and to have the support services necessary to reach self-sufficiency.  We are truly grateful for Boeing support and their dedication to the community.  We look forward to working along with local employers on this project.”

Employers and Veterans interested in participating in this project can contact Eileen McCoy at (610) 874-8451 or emccoy@caadc.org.
