U.S. Army and the City of Florence Join Forces

Florence, SC. — The U.S. Army and the City of Florence are scheduled to sign a partnership agreement on May 12th, 2022, as part of the U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program at 1:00 p.m. at 324 W. Evans Street, Florence, SC 29501.

The PaYS Program is a strategic partnership between the Army and a cross section of private industry, academia and state and local public institutes.  The U.S. Army PaYS Program guarantees Soldiers five job interviews and possible employment after their service in the Army.  The PaYS Program provides America’s youth with the unique opportunity to simultaneously serve their country and prepare for their future.  

The PaYS program is designed to help Soldiers prepare for a career after the Army by connecting them with employers who understand the skills, discipline, and work ethic that military service members bring to a business.  This program is part of a long-term U.S. Army effort to help Soldiers forge professional relationships with businesses and encourage business owners to look to the Army as a plentiful and reliable recruiting source.  Since PaYS began in 2000, more than 1,085 employers have partnered with the program.

Members of the media who wish to cover the ceremony should RSVP to Mr. Jeff Wolff, Advertising and Public Affairs Chief, Columbia Army Recruiting Battalion at (803) 904-0950 or jeffrey.l.wolff.civ@army.mil. Please provide the number of news team members/photographers who will attend.  Interviews with participants will be possible following the ceremony.
