Relating to the establishment of a career mentoring pilot program
for certain students who are veterans.
No fiscal impact to the state is anticipated.
SB 1538 would establish a pilot program called VetsHIRED within the Alamo Community College District. Under the pilot program, participating students who are veterans would be assigned to a "military transition consultant" to assist students in the transition from the military to civilian workforce. Students would be assigned to a cohort to meet weekly for a 10 week period for 20 hours of in-person lectures about career search strategies and strategies for college success. The pilot program would also be required to include a mentorship program to partner student veterans with business and community leaders who would guide the students into the workforce.
