Wesley Meno on participating in America’s Warrior Partnership Symposium

Wesley Meno explains why it's so important to be a participant in the America's Warrior Partnership's Symposium.

Wesley Meno is a Career Coach at Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina with their Operation: GoodJobs initiative. He explains why it’s so important to be a participant in the America’s Warrior Partnership’s Symposium.

Wesley says his role with Goodwill is to “interact with different veterans and family members in the community and assist with any sort of concerns in finding work,” and “support them all the way through so that they may be able to achieve financial stability as well as just an overall better quality of life.”

Organized by America’s Warrior Partnership, the Warrior Community Integration Symposium is an opportunity to share best practices, find innovative solutions, and form new collaborative partnerships to better help the veterans in their communities address the work challenges they sometimes encounter when making the transition to civilian life. 

WorkingNation set up its cameras at the Symposium and interviewed the speakers and attendees about the important issue of helping veterans deal with workforce challenges. You can follow the conversation on our social media under the hashtag #WorkingNationOverheard.
