Kentucky Veterans Employment, Training and Support Program (KyVETS)

The Kentucky Veterans Employment Training and Support Program (KyVETS) collaborates with companies, chambers of commerce, community organizations, military installations, and state agencies to develop a strategic talent pipeline for veteran employment and recruitment opportunities in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  Serving as a platform for “Veteran Employment Advocacy and Training”, KyVETS strives to breakdown cultural barriers and obstacles many veterans face when navigating the civilian workforce environment and connects you with education and training services designed to help you transition to civilian life.
