Education & Training


VAVETS supports our Virginia Veterans and their families as they evaluate their options for education and training. Our volunteers will provide local training to help our Veterans reintegrate back into the commercial sector. Our staff and volunteers will also partner with Virginia Colleges and Universities in each of our regions to ensure our Veterans have the knowledge and tools to be successful in the classroom. We will help our veterans identify degree paths that are aligned with the skills our corporate partners have demand for today or see as growth areas. We will help ensure our veterans understand and wisely apply their GI Bills. Here at VAVETS, we understand that college is not for everyone. VAVETS will work with our local businesses to establish vocational training centers and apprenticeships.
