Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Expands Service Offerings for Injured Soldiers with the New 'Warriors to Work' Program
Date:1/18/2008

-Resume Builder and Job Postings Part of Available Resources-

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- In their ongoing effort to ensure this group of returning wounded veterans are the most well-adjusted and successful generation of veterans, Wounded Warrior Project has expanded their ever-evolving battery of programs and services with the launch of their Warriors to Work (WtoW) initiative.

The Warriors to Work (WtoW) program helps servicemembers recovering from injuries like amputations and burns connect with the support and resources they need to build a career in the civilian workforce.

"The Warriors to Work program is designed to be an all-purpose job-hunting and skill-building toolbox for injured service members," stated Program Director and Wounded Warrior Ryan Kules. "An integral part of transitioning back into civilian life and rebuilding one's self image after injury is developing job skills and eventually a life-long career path. This program aims to assist in that process."

Through WtoW, WWP will provide a variety of services to meet participant's needs and interests. Specifically, WWP will assist with resume drafting and interviewing skills. Further, jobs that fit an individual's strengths will be identified or participants will be referred to educational training programs. Currently, WtoW is building a database of employers who are actively seeking to hire qualified veterans. Employers in security, defense, private industry, and other various industries have already been identified. New employers are added every day. The Warriors to Work program is sponsored by CSX, a leader in the railroad and transportation industry.

WtoW Program Director Ryan Kules, a former Army Captain who lost an arm and a leg in November of 2005 in Iraq, is available for interviews.
