After transitioning out of the Army in September 2015, I stayed home raising my two boys and wondered what I wanted to do for my future career. This past summer, I had the privilege of attending a Merivis cohort (completely free) to learn something new and exciting called Salesforce. Before Merivis, I had no idea what Salesforce was or had the skills/experience to enter into the IT Industry. Fast forward just FOUR months, I am now a certified Salesforce System Administrator and working as a Salesforce Business Analyst at The Fury Group in Houston, TX. This program has completely changed my life through the training and skills they provide but also with the endless support through the community. Merivis soley runs on donations and contributions, please consider helping me reach my goal of raising $1,000 to help other veterans like myself be trained and placed in the Salesforce ecosystem.
Merivis supports veterans preparing for their next missions through training, mentorship and job readiness for Salesforce cloud technology positions. With a growing need for Salesforce certified professionals and an increasing number of underemployed veterans in the country, we bridge the gap to help veterans transition to civilian life and find great careers. Since we started in 2015, Merivis has impacted the lives of nearly 250 military veterans by supporting them in their transition to civilian careers. Through our Salesforce training programs, we've put them on the path to growing, in-demand technology roles and we couldn't have done it without every member of the Merivis community.
We invite those that have been a part of Merivis as students, alumni, volunteers, coaches, sponsors, advocates and friends to join the Merivis fundraising team in spreading the word and raising funds to host additional programs in support our veterans.
You can contribute to Merivis here or choose one of our Alumni or Advocates pages below to help them reach their goal.
