BlueRio Strategies’ veteran-focused coaching program earns CCE approval- featured in San Diego….10/9/2012

A San Diego women-owned business, BlueRio Strategies, has received approval from the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE) for its Hawk Eye Veteran Development Coach Training, the first veteran-focused Board Certified Coach-approved training program. It’s also one of the first comprehensive coach certification training programs intended specifically to educate people in military veteran transition, reintegration and development coaching.

More than two years ago, BlueRio Strategies founder Jessi LaCosta developed a coaching method specifically for service members reintegrating into the civilian sector, after seeing her friends and clients face challenges unique to veterans. Only 1% of all Americans volunteer to serve in the Armed Forces, and while their service should pave the way for a bright future, the opposite often occurs; many veterans are underemployed, unemployed or even homeless.
