Work for Warriors



Work for Warriors

Work for Warriors (WFW) is a State and Federally funded Free Job Placement Program within California. The intent of the employment initiative branded “Work for Warriors” is aimed at assisting Post 9/11Veterans, Active National Guard, Active Reserve members, Spouses, and Gold Star Families find civilian employment.

In February 2012, The Adjutant General (TAG) of the California National Guard, Major General David S. Baldwin, worked with his Staff and the Speaker of the Assembly, John A. Perez, to tackle the California National Guard unemployment rate and the goal of reducing it by 25% in a year, which we accomplished and exceeded. WFW has helped place just under 4000 Service Members, Veterans and Spouses into gainful employment by our three year anniversary. Additionally, WFW has over 250 business partners throughout the State ofCalifornia.

A team of 18 Service Members and Veterans operate Work for Warriors and are matching the skill sets of our highly qualified Service Members, Veterans, and Spouses with the needs of civilian employers. Businesses who want to hire experienced Service Members will only have to contact our Resource Managers who serve as the single point of contact for employment needs.
