Three Orange County Organizations Team Up To Empower Women Veterans And Educate On Social Services
COSTA MESA, Calif., July 11, 2016 – The Global Center for Women and Justice at Vanguard University in partnership with Women Leading the Way in Orange County and Vanguard’s Veterans Center will host a free webinar for veterans who want to learn more about social services available to military members. The online webinar will be held Tuesday, July 19 at 6 p.m.
The specialized webinar will focus on women veterans and include community services for military members as well as a financial literacy with Vanguard’s partners at Morgan Stanley.
According to the Census Bureau, there are 21.8 million veterans of the U.S. armed forces as of 2014; the veteran unemployment rate has decreased since 2014, with more than half, 10.5 million, neither employed nor seeking employment.
Recently ranked in the 2016 U.S. News & World Report as #10 for Best Colleges for Veterans, Vanguard University is one of only a few universities in Southern California that proudly participates as a full Yellow Ribbon school—a GI Education Enhancement Program that provides an agreement between Vanguard and the Veterans Administration (VA). Under this agreement Vanguard works with the VA to fully match tuition rates so that veterans are not required to pay anything to complete their degree.
Vanguard’s Veterans Center also provides its own enrolled veteran students with specialized resources such as the campuses counseling center, disability services, tutoring center, writing center and career center.
