Vets on TAP, formerly Veterans Beer Club Jacksonville, is a group for transitioning military, veterans, spouses, local veterans non-profits, and business leaders in Jacksonville, FL. Currently, Vets on TAP hosts networking and education events, and plans to expand to areas including veterans transition support and a job board. Vets on TAP will accomplish this by establishing as a 501(c)3 non-profit and through securing grants and corporate sponsorship.
Networking events will occur on the 4th Tuesday of the month at a different craft brewery in the greater Jacksonville area. Vets on TAP will provide a low-pressure environment for its members to discuss employment, education, and training opportunities over a local craft beer. Non-profit organizations and local businesses seeking to hire or help veterans are welcome, but are reminded that solicitation is forbidden -- sign-up lists requesting veterans names and contact information are strictly prohibited -- it is entirely on the veteran to choose to reach out to an organization.
Education events will occur on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at Veterans United Craft Brewery, the official homeport of Vets on TAP. Sessions will be taught by Vets on TAP members who are subject matter experts in a particular field. Sample topics include VA home loans, resume writing, interview skills, and optimizing a job search.
