The U.S. Army and MEHOP are scheduled to sign a partnership agreement on August 28, 2018, as part of the U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program at 1pm at the Bay City Service Center, 2105 Ave. M, Bay City TX. The ceremony is open to the public and a reception will follow the event. Music will be provided by members of the 323d “Ft. Sam’s Own” Ft. Sam Houston Army Band.
The PaYS Program is a strategic partnership between the Army and a cross section of private industry, academia and federal, state and local public institutes. The U.S. Army PaYS Program guarantees Soldiers two job interviews and possible employment after their service in the Army. The PaYS Program provides America’s youth with the unique opportunity to simultaneously serve their country and prepare for their future.
The PaYS program is designed to help Soldiers prepare for a career after the Army by connecting them with employers who understand the skills, discipline, and work ethic that military service members bring to a business. This program is part of a long-term U.S. Army effort to help Soldiers forge professional relationships with businesses and encourage business owners to look to the Army as a plentiful and reliable recruiting source. Since PaYS began in 2000, more than 770 employers have partnered with the program.
