Veteran Individualized Placement Program


Veteran Individualized Placement program (VIP)

Goodwill of Silicon Valley’s Veteran Individualized Placement (VIP) supports our country’s veterans as they prepare for and secure rewarding civilian careers. Our all-veteran staff works closely with our program participants as they become job-ready. The funding received through the United States Department of Labor helps our veterans formulate individualized career plans, prepare for the job search process, and ultimately get hired into a new full-time permanent job.

Our Mission: To develop and promote a heart-felt partnership with the veterans we serve in which there is mutual care, concern, and determination for their well-being.

Our Vision: To ensure that every veteran in Santa Clara County has access to the services necessary to improve their quality of life and that those veterans have the opportunity to raise their standard of living through the power of employment.

Our Approach:  The VIP program began in 2007 and has successfully placed over 400 veterans into employment.  We partner with businesses and organizations to ensure our military service members get direct access to great jobs and rewarding careers.    Our holistic approach also supports housing, transportation, mental health, and provides job training opportunities.

If you are interested in joining our program or referring a job seeker to work with us, the first step is to setup an appointment via email or phone call.

#1 -- Active duty military service.
#2 -- Currently unemployed or underemployed and looking for a job.
