Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce & Industry trains veterans to enter workforce

This segment is produced with and sponsored by Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

Since 2017 the Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce & Industry has held a Veterans Back to Work Boot Camp to help returning veterans get back into the workforce. It's 10 weeks of training with help from Veteran Mentors - all to give them a chance at a great job.

The women behind the Veterans Boot Camp are Andrea Biwer, Executive Director of the Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce & Industry (and a proud Military Mom) and Marne Deithorn, Director of Human resources at Rivers Casino (and a proud Marine herself). They chatted with Val and Ryan about the program and what it means to veterans.

You can also donate to help these veterans: head to the Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce & Industry website to give.
