New job training center for veterans opens in Newark
NEWARK – The GI Go Fund, along with help from companies like Prudential, Panasonic and PSE&G have created the Jackson Drysdale Veterans Center inside the One Gateway Building to give veterans access to job training skills.
The facility is being called New Jersey’s first veteran incubator, where the companies themselves help teach veterans skills like project management, insurance skills and customer service.
“A veteran told me years ago we are trained to be trainable,” said Jack Fanous, CEO of the GI Go Fund.
According to Fanous, veterans in the Garden State will be able to train and apply to jobs at the facility, while veterans elsewhere will be able to access the training remotely and have access to jobs in other places around the nation.
The training center currently has space for around 20 companies with branches in New Jersey but are hooping to expand the space once they receive additional funding.
