Mil/Vet Employment Roadmap

Welcome to the Roadmap!


Welcome to the Arizona Roadmap to Veteran Employment!

The Roadmap is a statewide plan that engages public and private sector organizations with a goal of connecting service members, veterans and their family members to employment opportunities, training & resources. This effort is funded in part by the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family. The Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services and the Arizona Coalition for Military Families are the lead implementation partners.
