CareerSource Central Florida has been honored with the Veterans’ Performance Incentive Award from Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Veterans in the Central Florida area will soon be able to reap the benefits of a $38,000 award earned by the region’s workforce board.
CareerSource Central Florida partners with Central Florida businesses, colleges and universities to meet industry needs, and connect career seekers to local opportunities.
Last year, the organization served more than 2,100 local veterans.
For the third consecutive year, CareerSource has been honored with the Veterans’ Performance Incentive Award from Gov. Ron DeSantis for its excellence in connecting veterans with employment and career training.
The award includes a $38,000 grant that will be used to further enhance career readiness programs offered to local veterans.
This month, the organization is coordinating a free hiring event dedicated to Central Florida veterans.
“Paychecks for Patriots,” an annual career fair, will connect local members of the military and veteran community with career opportunities across multiple industries including hospitality, trade and logistics, and transportation.
The event will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Participants may attend virtually, or in-person, at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Hotel.
Registration is now open here.
