Clackamas CC focuses on vets
Clackamas Community College not only offers veterans the support they need to achieve their educational goals, but it also supports veterans' entrepreneurial endeavors.
CCC's Veterans Education and Training (VET) Center and Small Business Development Center (SBDC) are partnering with Veterans Business Services and the Small Business Administration to help veterans get the skills they need to start their own businesses.
On Wednesday, Sept. 5, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., veterans are invited to attend a free Boots to Business Reboot course.
They will learn the steps, stages and activities needed to launch and grow a small business as a post-military career. The course will be facilitated by advisors from the Small Business Administration and SBDC. After the workshop, veterans are invited to stay for a free networking event until 6 p.m.
Organizations from around the state will be on hand to help veterans develop ongoing relationships for mentoring, technical assistance and professional business services.
"CCC works hard to provide veterans with the resources they need to grow and thrive," Director of the Small Business Development Center Rob Campbell said. "Partnerships like this are an important way for the college to support veterans where they are at in our community."
The Boots to Business Reboot course and networking event will be held in Harmony West, room 130, located on the Harmony Community Campus, 7726 SE Harmony Road, Milwaukie.
Clackamas Community College is proud to serve veterans. The college's award-winning VET Center on CCC's Oregon City campus is ranked nationally as one of the best college resources for veterans.
