Jobs and Training for Veterans

Veterans are used to working together as a team, a band of brothers and sisters bonded by duty, honor, and camaraderie often forged in combat. Veterans Curation Program facilities are staffed with eight to ten veterans working as a team and this camaraderie is an important benefit of the VCP.

The VCP provides veterans with an opportunity to receive competitive pay while learning new job skills through technical training in a peer-to-peer environment.

Veterans acquire skills, including:

  • Computer database management
  • Records management
  • Photographic and scanning technologies
  • A knowledge of archaeology & history
  • Processing and curation of archaeological collections
  • Microsoft Office® software proficiency
  • Vocabulary and writing skills
  • Increased interpersonal communication skills

These skills readily translate into jobs in the medical, police, fire, administrative, government, and engineering fields. The Veterans Curation Program, working in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other agencies and organizations, will assist VCP participants in job preparation and placement.

The Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) Ms. Jo-Ellen Darcy, speaking at the Augusta public opening stated, “No group of people has done more to forge our national identity throughout history than the veterans who have served and sacrificed for the nation. It is our privilege to now be able to give disabled veterans an opportunity to continue shaping the nation through the work and training they will do at this important new facility.”

This is a very special project for extraordinary people who have served our country with honor. They deserve the best we can offer.
