Veteran's Support Network 501(c)(3) provides funding for Vets with Issues including but not limited to homelessness - they've fallen down the "rabbit hole" and it is hard to climb out without some new tools (a resume with new certifications) and confidence. Others help find them jobs, but don't give them new knowledge and tools to get them GOOD jobs, so we work with those other organizations for a total new start for these great Americans.
Here are students who just graduated from their class at Veteran's Village, nice lunch at the Golden Nugget - let me ask you, do they LOOK like homeless people now? No, they are revitalized and ready to roll!!!
Dr. Johnson speaks on Validating GFI Certifications Providing certifications from the Global Foodservice Institute, with HQ at the State University of New York at Morrisville and UNLV in Las Vegas.

Our students are like rainbows, they come in all colors, sizes but have a similar desire, to better their chances at success.
Dr. Joan Johnson, GFI at SUNY Morrisville Executive Director, was instrumental in building the certification exams, and she answers questions about certification reviews, how much can you learn in a day, what employers can expect, which ones value certifications, etc. May help you decide for YOURSELF what your available and then best options are to build your career.
