Merivis Foundation supports military veterans preparing for their next mission through training, mentorship and job readiness for Salesforce cloud technology careers.
Ever since my days of being in the US Air Force, I knew I wanted to give back to the community that gave so much to me as a young man. I just did not know how, but then in 2015, I help start Merivis in Texas. Merivis bridges the gap for military veterans and spouses who want to transition to a growing technology job market and specifically at this point Salesforce careers. Merivis is making a real difference in the lives of many veterans as the military made a difference in my life many years ago. We are a 501c3 and up until 2 months ago was an all-volunteer board who also did most of the work over the last 3 years. However, we are growing and need to fund raise to serve more veterans and military spouses beyond Texas. We want to scale next year and could use your help.
What Exactly Do We do?
In three years, we have had nearly 100 vets and spouses in our cohorts that include virtual training, trailhead homework, in-person training, resume assistance, mock interviews, personal branding, 1x1 coaching, networking 101, and social media strategy.
Over the last 3 years, we have had over 100 alumni who have gone on to work at Dell, Amazon, Google, Cap Gemini, Deloitte and many other companies across the country and plan to have many more in 2019.
