Free Workshop in Rocklin to Support Veterans
Rocklin, CA--Did you know that nearly 700 military veterans are attending Sierra College right now?
And the numbers are growing every semester, not only because local veterans are returning home in greater numbers, but also because Sierra's Veteran Services has earned a national reputation for excellence, attracting vets from across the country. Understanding their unique needs and providing the support they need has never been more important.
On Friday November 8, 2013 Sierra College Rocklin Campus is hosting a workshop called "At Ease" Training: Understanding and Supporting Our Veterans. The workshop will be held in the Dietrich Theatre from 9:30 until noon. It is open and free to everyone, but seating is limited to the first people to RSVP. We have invited members of other colleges, businesses, and the community, so we anticipate a full house. If you would like to attend, please respond to this link as soon as possible:
Registration or http://at-ease.eventbrite.com/.
