LOCAL U.S. VETERAN, BUSINESS OWNER, NON-PROFIT FOUNDER
HELPS VETERANS FIND CIVILIAN JOBS AFTER MILITARY SERVICE
Veterans Day is this Friday, Nov. 11, but the Charlie-Mike Foundation, a local non-profit organization dedicated to connecting veterans with skilled local resources and employment opportunities, works year-round to help former military members successfully transition into civilian life.
Charlie-Mike Foundation founder Mike Del Prado, a U.S. veteran and owner of local business and consulting firm Executive Option, created the non-profit because he saw a need to help former service members translate their military experience into new careers when they exit the armed forces. Distinctive from other non-profit organizations connecting job seekers with potential employers, the Charlie-Mike Foundation takes a personalized approach with each veteran, considering every individual’s unique skill set, family needs, health and financial status and long-term goals.
Mike Del Prado serves as president and chief executive officer (CEO) at Executive Option, a Southern Nevada-based business consulting firm specializing in enterprise systems and change management. A U.S. veteran, Del Prado also founded the Charlie-Mike Foundation offering veterans access to trained career mentors, personal and family-oriented career plans driven by the veteran’s health, financial and individualized needs, as well as ongoing and long-term career support and resources.
Media interested in interviewing a representative of the Charlie-Mike Foundation are requested to email Erika Pope at firstname.lastname@example.org.
