Event description

Description

Warrior Week Chicago is presented by, Chicago Veterans, Wounded Warrior Project, Road Home Program, The Mission Continues, Team Rubicon, Team RWB, Vet Centers, Illinois Joining Forces and The Travis Manion Foundation. This week-long series of events is designed for veterans to highlight different programs and resources available to help the transition to civilian life and succeed. Starting September 14th until the 21st, each day, a veterans service organization (VSO) will highlight their programs to show the variety of ways VSOs support veterans. September is "Suicide Awareness Month", therefore, this week was created to give Veterans an opportunity to foster their mental health and connect to organizations to help them continue to grow positively.

On Thursday, September 19th Chicago Veterans will host their Liberty Call as part of Warrior Week. Since 2014, Chicago Veterans has hosted over 50 Liberty Calls in more than 30 neighborhoods throughout the Chicagoland area. Liberty Calls have helped connect over a thousand veterans and family members throughout the years with employment opportunities, access to health care and well-being resources from organizations serving the Veteran community. Our Liberty calls help provide resources for veterans to start their own business, assistance to get back in college, employment opportunities, and obtain peer-to-peer support from Veterans who have experienced the same struggles as other returning service members.

If you are currently looking for a career change or for a new employment opportunity please bring your resume with you as our Employment Manager will be on hand to talk about upcoming employment opportunities.

Liberty Call events are Business Casual, so please come dressed to impress.
