The VA Acquisition Academy Acquisition Internship School launched a Warriors to Workforce Program designed to prepare wounded, post-9/11 Veterans with little or no college education, for a successful transition into careers as contract specialists.  The program is a 3-year holistic program that focuses on business education, acquisition training, activities to understand the VA mission, peak performance training, “skillbuilding” courses to practice the skills learned in the contracting courses, and leadership and business competency  development.  This program empowers wounded Veterans and allows them to continue service their country, plus supplies a pipeline of talent to the acquisition function.

Congratulations!
