    Wurzweiler Care Cafe: Escape Velocity for Veterans

    Wurzweiler Care Café presents Escape Velocity for Veterans: Embracing Change, Surviving Transition with Guest Speaker Jason Cahill on April 29, 2-4pm.

    Done with deployment? Wondering what to do next? Need a jump-start for civilian success? Entrepreneur Jason Cahill figured it out! In this supportive, strategic workshop, he’ll share insider tips for embracing change and surviving transition.  He’ll guide you from “crawl” (goal setting and finding your inner purpose), to “walk” (network building), through the job application process, to “run” (securing that job, keeping connected and paying it forward). Come for camaraderie and step-by-step support. Leave full of good food and great energy to take on the home front and win.

    Jason Cahill is a US Army Special Forces combat veteran and an early-stage investor, advisor, mentor, and entrepreneur. As managing director of McCune Capital, his expertise spans transportation, supply chain, infrastructure, agtech, and cleantech. He is an advisor at Carnegie Mellon University and an advisory board member at SXSW; he also mentors for Columbia University, ERA, and Grand Central Tech’s Urban Tech Hub.

    Wurzweiler Care Café's events offer tools and hope to help you better negotiate challenges and move towards your full potential. Our respectful, responsive presentations and sensitive support empower you for healing and growth. Delivered in a friendly, comfortable cafe environment—full of good food plus great take-away resources and referrals—these strengths-based events fill your cup with practical know-how and emotional support around the issues that concern you most.

    Wurzweiler Care Café is a free offering from the Wurzweiler School of Social Work at Yeshiva University.
