Telehealth at the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Endeavors

The clinic provides high-quality, accessible, and integrated mental health care to services to post-9/11 Veterans, including National Guard and Reserves, regardless of role in uniform, discharge status, or combat experience, and military family members, as determined by the Veteran. All post-9/11 Veterans and their families are eligible for treatment and we believe cost should never be a barrier to care.

2020 - 2021 New Apprenticeship Pilot For Transitioning Service Members

The U.S. Department of Labor is pleased to announce the launch of a new Apprenticeship Pilot for transitioning service members (TSMs), hosted through the Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS).

The APCs are providing counseling and apprenticeship preparation services to a talented pipeline of potential apprentices, which makes their primary audience a natural fit for your apprenticeship program.

During the Pilot, APCs are assisting TSMs as they select, locate and apply for apprenticeships that are located across the nation. If you are interested in connecting your program with this Pilot, please email VETSApprenticeship@dol.gov.
