WCSU helps veterans with professional goals

DANBURY, CONN. — By learning the ins and outs of professional management at the Fortune 500 level, military veterans can enter the workforce with more skills and options than ever before. And Western Connecticut State University is here to help.

Western is participating with Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS), a registered nonprofit company that affords young adults in inner-city, rural and underserved areas an opportunity to chart their own path to personal, professional and financial independence through scholarship programs.

In order to complete a two-semester, six-month Certificate in Project Management training program, veteran students learn about project management and information technology at a satellite campus of WCSU. At the same time, WOS matches students with corporations where they can receive on-the-job training. Upon completion, students are expected to enter a bachelor’s degree program paid for by WOS or the employer corporation.

Students benefit from the program because they have not just a year of intensive academic training, but they are also taught how to use that knowledge by working in a corporate environment simultaneously.

To qualify for participation in the WOS program at Western, students must have a high school diploma, an honorable discharge and military service past 9/11/01.

For more information, contact WOS at (940) 224-4764 or apply at www.wforce.org.
