Veteran Services

Assisting veterans in finding family sustaining and meaningful employment is a top priority at IDES. The American Job Center staff provide veterans with priority of service for employment services (does not apply to unemployment insurance). In addition, we have over 30 American Job Centers and offices located throughout Illinois that provide a full array of employment focused services to assist veterans. Training services are available through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act partners that are collocated at each American Job Center.
