Veterans have the proven ability to learn new skills and concepts. In addition, they can enter the workforce with identifiable and transferable skills, proven in real world situations. Colleges are encouraged to participate by offering education opportunities for Veterans.
Veterans will have the opportunity to meet with prospective employers, learn about education
opportunities available through local colleges and participate in workshops to improve skills. Workshops
