Pike Enterprises, LLC was recently selected to participate in the U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success Program.

Program partners sign an agreement to provide job interviews and potential employment to separating soldiers. Interviews are guaranteed to program soldiers upon completion of their training and/or first term of service, provided all other requirements are met.

As part of this program, military occupational specialties are matched with civilian jobs. Army reservists and Army National Guard soldiers are eligible to interview immediately upon completion of training.

“The program provides America’s youth with an opportunity to serve their country, while they prepare for their future,” the Mount Airy-based Pike Enterprises said in a release about the program. “Soldiers learn technical skills required by industry and selected government agencies; along with work ethics, teamwork, communication, and leadership during their enlistment in the United States Army.”

The company, along with Army officials, held a ceremony last week to commemorate the partnership.
