On Wednesday, July 13, 2016, Reddaway officially signed an agreement with the US Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program.
The Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program is a strategic partnership between the US Army and a cross section of corporations, companies, and public sector agencies. The Program provides America’s youth with an opportunity to serve their country while they prepare for their future. PaYS Partners guarantee Soldiers an interview and possible employment after the Army. This unique Program is part of the Army’s effort to partner with America’s business community and reconnect America with its Army.
The PaYS Program began in 2000 as an enlistment incentive for Regular Army enlisted Soldiers. In October 2002, the Program expanded to include Army Reserve Soldiers. The Program later expanded to include Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) Reserve Component Cadets and ROTC Cadets who incur an active duty commitment.
This partnership comes just 18 months after Reddaway paired with Hiring Our Heroes and FASTPORT to hire 150 veterans. Currently, Reddaway employs nearly 200 veterans and is excited to expand this number with the Army PaYS program.
As part of the program, soldiers select a PaYS partner during their enlistment process and two PaYS partner job opportunities. Interviews are guaranteed to PaYS soldiers upon completion of their training and/or first term of service. Reddaway will have the opportunity to mentor these individuals and help them build better civilian job-seeking skills as they transition to private employment.
