The JMVC works with military organizations, veterans groups, industry associations, governmental entities, and Jacksonville businesses to build awareness and understanding of how these skills and cultural attributes make military veterans outstanding employees.
We pledge to support employment, career development, and educational opportunities for Military Veterans in Northeast Florida.
