Hello colleagues and friends,
I am writing to announce the open recruitment period for the Corporation for National and Community Service, Americorps program Vet Corps in Washington State. We have several sites open throughout King and Peirce County…as well as through out the state.
The WDVA Vet Corps is funded through an AmeriCorps grant. Vet Corps members are stationed at many colleges throughout the state.
Vet Corps members help veterans achieve their higher education goals by:
- Providing training and support to college faculty, staff and administration to increase awareness of student veterans’ needs;
- Providing a peer connection for veterans new to higher education;
- Helping the college to meet the needs of student veterans; and
- Providing veterans with connections to federal, state or local veteran’s benefits.
The Vet Corps helps veterans and their family members navigate Washington’s higher education and training programs as veterans adjust from military to college life.
Please liberally share this e-mail and attached flyer.
If you, or someone you know, may be interested in applying or learning more about the program feel free to contact me directly.
