GovX Donates Over $7,000 to Veteran Non-Profit Workshops for Warriors

Posted 28 May-2020 12:44 PM by shipley | 671

A fundraising effort organized by GovX, the online shopping site exclusively for current and former military and first responders, has raised over $7,000 for Workshops for Warriors, a nonprofit school founded in 2008 that provides hands-on training, STEM educational programs, and opportunities to earn third party nationally recognized credentials that enable veterans and transitioning service members to be placed into advanced manufacturing careers at no cost to their students.

Workshops for Warriors imbues the warrior's character in U.S. manufacturing. Since its inception in 2008, the school has grown in popularity and size, fueled by a population of veterans and transitioning service members seeking meaningful and challenging careers in the civilian workforce. Elevated by the credentials that WFW students earn, graduates experience a 95% job placement rate within three months of program completion, earn an average salary of $60,000/year, and are enabled to succeed in a changing industry affected by automation, globalization, and other technological advancements.

"Workshops for Warriors is honored by GovX's continued support," said WFW Founder & CEO Hern¡n Luis y Prado. "GovX has long stood by our mission of rebuilding American manufacturing with our nation's best and brightest pool of untapped talent”our veterans. We are especially grateful for their commitment to WFW during these uncertain times. Financial support like this helps us maintain a strong foundation so we can continue serving our veterans and our country."

Retired U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman and Surface Warfare Officer Hern¡n Luis y Prado founded Workshops for Warriors based on two pressing needs: The lack of advanced manufacturing talent in the United States, and the fact that many veterans and transitioning service members struggle to successfully integrate back into civilian life once their military commitments end.

The GovX community raised the funds to support Workshops for Warriors with over 1,900 individual purchases of the newest entry in the Patch of the Month collectible series on GovX.com. The effort adds to the GovX Gives Back charitable donation program, which donated over $75,000 last year to nonprofits serving military, first responders, law enforcement professionals, and the families who support them.

"At a difficult time for the United States, it's especially powerful to watch the GovX community step up to support the veterans of Workshops for Warriors," said Alan Cole, GovX CEO. "Veterans have always proudly met every challenge that comes their way, and to be able to give back to this high-powered, passionate school dedicated to helping veterans build futures beyond the military is a true privilege."
