Congressman Schrader Will Join CCC VET Center Grand Opening

 Congressman Kurt Schrader will attend the grand reopening of the Veterans Education and Training Center at Clackamas Community College on Monday, Feb, 18 at 10 a.m.

After four years of serving student veterans the VET Center has relocated to a new home in the Bill Brod Community Center. The central campus location will give veteran students better access to student services. It is also strategically located near the Army Strong Community Center, an Army Reserve facility serving military families and veterans.

The college opened the VET Center in November 2009, one of many efforts undertaken to better serve veteran students. Since that time, the number of veteran students enrolled at CCC has nearly doubled.

CCC has received national recognition for its outreach and service to veterans and military families. Last year CCC was named the 2012 Family Program Community Purple Award winner by the National Guard Bureau. This national award is given to one community group or organization from across the country each year that provides support to family and service members of both the Air and Army National Guard.

Since 2007, CCC has increased its services and support for veterans and military families through several initiatives. In addition, the college has hosted three major career and benefit fairs, bringing veterans, members of the Oregon National Guard and military families together with dozens of veteran-friendly employers and veteran service providers.

Two years ago CCC launched the “vetrepreneurship” program, offering veteran small business owners and entrepreneurs 2,000 training hours and 900 hours of one-on-one counseling on small business management. The college is a regional leader in translating military training into college credit.
