Veterans Curation Program

The Veterans Curation Program (VCP) is a five-month program that provides employment, vocational training, and technology skills to veterans seeking to improve their access to the mainstream job market.

The VCP was created to process at-risk archaeological collections belonging to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Many of these collections require rehabilitation in order to meet federal standards, and the VCP employs veterans as laboratory technicians to perform this work. This includes cleaning, re-housing, photographing, and cataloging, providing veterans a valuable bridging experience from active duty into the public sector.
