The College of Staten Island’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) co-sponsored a Veterans Resource Day on March 18 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Great Kills, Staten Island, the first in a series of outreach programs for veterans. The event’s other co-sponsor was Support Our Soldiers, a veterans’ advocacy organization on Staten Island.
Initiatives such as these provide a number of resources available for veterans including small business counseling and business plan development, U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Veterans programs, educational programs and assistance at CSI, and job opportunities and skill development through the Department of Labor and other key organizations.
The next scheduled event will be a Veterans Job Fair program to be held at CSI on Wednesday, April 23. For further information, please contact the SBDC at 718.982.2560.
