Washington, D.C. - Evocati LLC and The Washington Center have partnered to design a curriculum for up to 25 student veterans interning in Washington, D.C. as part of TWC’s VET Initiative. The Veterans Employment Trajectory Initiative is a 10-week professional immersion program hosted by TWC and supported by Prudential where student veterans are matched with an internship that fits their career goals.
