  • What is it?

    The Joint Enlistment Enhancement Program is a Vermont State program to incentivize non-recruiters to become a recruiting assistant by supporting the enlistment or accession of Soldiers or Airmen into the Vermont National Guard.

    From Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2022, recruiting assistants will receive $1,000 for any non-prior service, prior service, or officer accession. The recruiting assistant must provide the lead and be available to the prospect from initial contact throughout the enlistment process up to the beginning of initial entry training.
