The Campaign Alliance Team


American Jobs for America’s Heroes is an alliance of the National Guard, the Center for America (CFA), Corporate America Supports You (CASY) and the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCCN) to help unemployed National Guard members, veterans and spouses find skilled jobs in the private sector.


CASY is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004 that focuses on improving employment and education opportunities for all service members, veterans, and military spouses. CASY is affiliated with MSCCN, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization focusing on job creation and job readiness for U.S. military-affiliated job seekers.


Relying completely on private donations, CASY and MSCCN have formed partnerships with more than 600 major corporations resulting in the largest private sector job bank in the nation dedicated to military personnel. More than 3.5 million military personnel have benefited from CASY and MSCCN’s direct Applicant - Recruiter Connect Placement Program, job bank, job counseling and employment-readiness training, among other services. 


In September 2011, MSCCN received the prestigious Newman's Own Award, one of six organizations chosen that year from among 186 nominated groups.


Center for America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2004 to expand nonpartisan public dialog about vital issues facing the country.  In recognition of how the growing skills shortage will devastate the economy, families and communities, this year CFA launched the 10 By 20 Pledge for America campaign, with the goal of mobilizing grassroots America to support expanded skills training programs in local communities -- 10 million new skilled workers by 2020.  Major companies, trade associations, school systems, community colleges, unions and nonprofit organizations are working with CFA to promote the campaign.  CFA is taking the lead on communicating with tens of thousands of businesses to recruit and register them in this initiative through an ongoing national media and web-based communications effort. 


The National Guard is communicating through all available channels with members, veterans and spouses, including more than one million Facebook followers, to encourage use of the expanded job portal at  MSCCN and CFA have the full support and collaboration of the National Guard in this initiative.
