Grijalva to host workshop for veterans
Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva will host a jobs and economic workshop for veterans in Somerton on Wednesday.
The event will take place at 10 a.m. Wednesday inside the Yuma Private Industry Council's (YPIC) Somerton office, located at 663 E. Main St.
The congressman is hosting the workshop in partnership with YPIC, the U.S. Department of Labor and the Arizona Department of Economic Security.
The event is free and open to veterans and their spouses interested in learning more about job opportunities, retraining, and local business investment programs.
Grijalva will speak at the event and be on hand to explain federal assistance programs for veteran employees and business owners.
“The federal government is going to play a key role if we're going to get Southern Arizona and the rest of the country back to work, and veteran families deserve every chance we can give them to re-enter the economy successfully,” the congressman stated in a press release.
