LAX AIRPORT - Success!
LAX Edge4Vets workshop series was expanded this spring!
"Mentors" from airport companies and LAWA departments worked with vets (left) to help them translate their military strengths to earn jobs at LAX during a workshop April 24, 2018. The program was so successful in 2017 that LAWA led an expansion this spring, along with private companies, including airline carriers, retail, concessions, security - even construction companies. Check back soon for details on the next round of expansion.
Executives from major South Florida businesses, led by Carnival Corporation, provided support to South Florida veterans from four schools, led by Miami Dade College West, for an Edge4Vets workshop in 2017. Hotels providing "mentors" through the Greater Miami and the Beaches Hotel Association, included Graham Companies, Airport Hilton, Loews Miami Beach, Crowne Plaza, along with Bank of America and Merrill Lynch. Edge4Vets works with Miami Dade Aviation Department to connect vets to airport jobs and directs vets from its workshops to Mission United for follow up support. Next workshop May 22, register now!
