Together We Served: Training, Inc. in Michigan will offer free computer, IT and vocational classes for veterans. seolabservicex - Ronald L. Battle, Jr

Pontiac, MI - The treatment of veterans in America is far from adequate and Ronald Battle, a former Marine from Pontiac, Mich., intends to do something about it.

“There are more than 60,000 veterans sleeping on the streets every night and this is reprehensible,” said Battle. “Their unemployment rate is nearly 8 percent higher than other Americans. We are putting together a program to help unemployed veterans obtain and retain jobs so they can stabilize their lives, and become self-sufficient.”

The program, Together We Served: Training, Inc. (TWST), will provide computer, IT and vocational training for unemployed and homeless veterans. In addition, TWST will offer life skills training, such as money management and stress management. The program, free for veterans who have received an honorable or general discharge, also coordinates transportation to and from classes.

“In the Marine Corp, we were trained to never leave a Marine behind,” said Battle. “With TWST, we are helping those veterans who have been left behind by society. It’s our responsibility to create a supportive community that will provide careers and education at no cost to them.

“We will help veterans achieve a smooth and productive transition from military to civilian life, to develop professionally as well as personally in the community. Through engagement, education, employment, and healing, we aim to help our student-veterans learn to manage the resources that are available to them and become better equipped to ensure a productive and happy life.”

The TWST Employment & Training program will provide:

-Assessments
-Professional development
-Job training
-Job placement
-Follow up
In order to launch Together We Served: Training, Inc., Battle needs $100,000 for computer equipment, office space, furniture, transportation and staffing. To generate this capital, he has launched an Indiegogo campaign, which can be viewed at www.indiegogo.com/projects/together-we-served-united-to-save-our-vets

Donations of any amount are welcome. For a $50 pledge, backers receive a TWST T-shirt. A $100 contribution is rewarded with a TWST cap.

“We’re taking a holistic approach to ending unemployment among veterans,” Battle said. “It’s education plus job placement and life skills. We’re going to focus on Information technology skills that are underserved by normal workforce placement teams.”
