THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - The Georgia Department of Labor is working with a south Georgia technical college to put veterans back to work.
As part of the VOW to Hire Heroes Act, select unemployed veterans can qualify for the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program.
They'll receive training at Southwest Georgia Technical College for a high demand occupation.
"We feel like it is important to help our veterans to get into the workforce. Not only the veterans that are going to be eligible for this VRAP, but for all veterans. The recent ones that are coming back from deployment and getting out of the service and trying to get adjusted back into everyday life," said VA Certifying Official Sondra Crawford.
The college is hosting an informational workshop Thursday morning at 10 in room 132 of Building A.
