Using social media as the matchmaker, NYCEDA plans to implement a Veteran employment “Effects Based Operation” otherwise known as EBO to assist veterans seeking jobs and employers wanting to hire a veteran.
An Effects Based Operation (EBO) – a term coined by the US Air Force, seeks to understand the causal linkages between events, actions and results. For example, the effect of feeding a hungry child could be accomplished by handing the child a meal, directing the child or guardian to a soup kitchen or by providing the guardian a job as a means to earn sufficient ongoing income to afford daily meals for themselves and their children. NYCEDA plans to use EBO concepts such as combining military (Veterans Affairs agency services) and non-military methods (job placement community program services) with computer technology (social media) to achieve a particular effect: “Veteran Employment Using Social Media Networking”. NYCEDA believes that our veterans are vital to our national economic force and should have a swift and direct route to employment to ensure that their expertise and training can be utilized in the best possible manner for our nation – without a great deal of time lost, cost and effort expended.
NYCEDA follows HIPAA regulations and ACA, NRA, IARP and CRCC ethics guidelines. NYCEDA maintains confidential record keeping and security standards. NYCEDA is well versed in “Impairment of Employability Service” and “Service Connected” Disabilities.
Our vision – to assist students and job seekers with disabilities in school and work. To start and successfully maintain a mission (VEEBO) to help Veterans attend and complete school, participate in job training and obtain gainful employment.
Our mission – to use community resources, vocational services, rehabilitation medicine practices, assistive technology and social media to help job seekers.
Our values – treat members with respect, dignity and hope for the future by providing practical solutions and services.
Who we are – vocational counselors, employers, higher education coordinators, business professionals and computer specialists.
How we are funded – so far, we are not funded by any private, community or government entity. Many of our services are donated by NYCEDA staff, professionals in the community and by volunteers. NYCEDA is in the process of seeking government grants, private gifts, corporate sponsorship, state vendorship and federal veteran contracts to assist and complete our mission: Employment of job seekers with disabilities and returning Veterans of Iraq and Afganistan.
Gifts and gift certificates – are now being accepted through the NYCEDA Store for Veterans to obtain vocational services and to fund and maintain VEEBO: “Veteran Employment Effects Based Operation” program.
NYCEDA is a Limited Liability Company “LLC”. Donations are not tax deductible at this time. NYCEDA is seeking fiscal sponsorship from a 501c3 entity for donations towards VEEBO. Currently, gift giving and gift certificates for Veterans and students are available through the NYCEDA Store.
