Andson and the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Host Veterans Finance and Job Fair

Among the 573,000 unemployed veterans in 2014, 59 percent were age 45 and over. Statistics like that motivated the Nevada State Treasurer, Dan Schwartz, to build a veterans initiative for 2015-16 to help tackle this issue. Andson, Inc., a local nonprofit focused on financial education was enlisted to build a veterans financial literacy workshop. With the assistance of the Financial Guidance Center, and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Andson will host a finance and job fair.

Statistics like that motivated the Nevada State Treasurer, Dan Schwartz, to build a veterans initiative for 2015-16 to help tackle this issue. Andson, Inc., a local nonprofit focused on financial education and academic support was enlisted to build a veterans financial literacy workshop.
