VTANG Interview Opportunity Program


"Army PaYS"


The Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program is a strategic partnership between the Army and a cross section of corporations, companies, and public-sector agencies. The program provides America's youth with an opportunity to serve their country while they prepare for their future. PaYS Partners guarantee Soldiers an interview and possible employment after the Army. This unique Program is part of the Army's effort to partner with America's business community and reconnect America with its Army.


Your participation in PaYS allows you to work alongside Army Recruiters, Army National Guard Recruiters and local ROTC programs during community partner events that send the message of staying in school, setting goals, choosing appropriate friendships, leading a values focused life and staying off drugs. Additionally, granting an employment interview gives you the opportunity to mentor Soldiers and newly commissioned Officers as they transition to private employment.
