Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America

Last week a guy I knew in college e-mailed me looking for some career guidance. I’m happy to help just about anyone as long as they ask pretty specific questions, but I’m especially willing to do whatever I can to help him out. Why? While I thought I was taking a risk by doing a startup after graduation, he’s been flying helicopters in Afghanistan for the Army. It’s easy to forget that there are people like him who are risking their lives every day to protect us. Memorial Day weekend is all about thanking them and remembering those who have lost their lives in the call of duty. That’s why we’re going to take a look at an organization called Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America today. They’re based in New York, NY and Washington, DC, and they are the “country’s first and largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization for veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Join the Movement

There’s a PSA that I see on tv all the time from the IAVA and the Ad Council, you’ve probably seen it. It’s worth watching, but I think you’ll get more information from this IAVA video called Join the Movement:

The IAVA’s goal is to help build “the next greatest generation with a three-pronged model based on advocacy, awareness, and assistance.” Membership for veterans free, and it offers access to programs like an online community just for veterans, health, education and employment resources, and free rewards and exclusive offers. It’s all about preparing our veterans for success when they get back home. If that sounds like something that you want to be part of, then you should take a look at Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America’s Jobs page. Right now they’re trying to fill the following positions:

  • Office Coordinator (New York, NY)
  • Communications Coordinator (New York, NY)
  • Development Associate – Stewardship (New York, NY)
  • Development Coordinator – Events (New York, NY)

These look like great positions where you can really make a difference in the lives of our veterans. Check them out and consider applying–especially if you’re a veteran (and if you are, thank you!).
