U.S. Army, South East Express agree to PaYS Program partnership
TIMMONSVILLE, S.C. – The U.S. Army and the South East Express Inc. are scheduled to sign a partnership agreement Wednesday, Oct. 17, as part of the U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program.
The PaYS Program is a strategic partnership between the Army and a cross section of private industry, academia and state and local public institutes.
The U.S. Army PaYS Program guarantees soldiers two job interviews and possible employment after their service in the Army. The PaYS Program provides America’s youth with the opportunity to simultaneously serve their country and prepare for their future.
The PaYS program is designed to help soldiers prepare for a career after the Army by connecting them with employers who understand the skills, discipline and work ethic that military service members bring to a business. This program is part of a long-term U.S. Army effort to help soldiers forge professional relationships with businesses and encourage business owners to look to the Army as a plentiful and reliable recruiting source.
Since PaYS began in 2000, more than 779 employers have partnered with the program.
