From 2008 to 2015, Wall Street Warfighters Foundation provided training and job placement support for veterans interested in careers in the financial services industry.
When Wall Street Warfighters began, the “street” was very hesitant to hire a veteran, in any capacity. Wall Street Warfighters played a vital role in opening doors for returning veterans, and provided the “proof source” that got the ball rolling with many financial institutions. Wall Street Warfighters Foundation is no longer active — it was expensive to maintain, and with many firms forming their own veterans programs, it became somewhat redundant.
Our sincere thanks to all who made this non-profit a success story – the program trained more than 200 veterans, with a greater than 95% placement rate.
The Foundation has shifted its focus to assisting disadvantaged inner city veterans gain meaningful employment.
