About Army PaYS The Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program is a strategic partnership between the U.S. Army and a cross section of corporations, companies, and public sector agencies. The program is free, and provides America's youth with an opportunity to serve their country, while preparing for their future. While joining the U.S. Army, future Soldiers select up to 5 companies (partnered with the U.S. Army) to interview with when they become available for employment. Organizations that partner with the U.S. Army PaYS Program interview those eligible Soldiers. The hope is that more Soldiers interviewed, will increase the number of those being hired. This unique program is part of the U.S. Army's effort to partner with America's business community and connect America with its Army.
Currently, there are 1,028 PaYS Partners across the United States who are invested in hiring Soldiers. The partners range from Global 100, Fortune 500, and Grassroots Companies to uniformed services such as Police, Fire, and Medical organizations. The U.S. Army PaYS Program is free and has been around for 21 years.
