PPWFC, Aspen Pointe host veterans job fair Tuesday

AspenPointe’s Peer Navigator Program will partner with Pikes Peak Workforce Center for its annual “Hire Vets First” job fair for veterans from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 12 at the El Paso County Citizens Service Center, 1675 Garden of the Gods Road.

Twenty-eight companies will meet with veterans to discuss employment opportunities, and AspenPointe will give each veteran attending the job fair a voucher for free lunch in the AspenPointe Café.

The Peer Navigator Program is free to military members, veterans, and their families to connect with resources in the Colorado Springs community to help them meaningfully improve their lives and accomplish their goals.

The Peer Navigators focus on whole-person wellness, and help connect individuals with resources to help meet mental health, physical health, community integration, and career development needs, according to a news release.
