Veterans Career Exploration

Several thousand veterans are returning to Minnesota over the coming weeks.  The pictures and stories of reunited loved shared by our local media has touched all of us.  CLC now has an opportunity to give back to our veterans.  On Wednesday, June 13, from 4 - 7 p.m., CLC will be hosting a Celebrate Veterans Career Exploration event at our Brainerd campus.  The event is one of many being planned by the Brainerd Lakes Community to help veterans and their families through this time of transition and will provide planning and support that will lead to jobs for vets.
All veterans and their families in the seven county surrounding region will be invited to attend the career exploration event.  The event is expected to draw several thousand veterans and will provide an opportunity for them to explore career options while interacting with area businesses, service providers, and CLC instructors and staff.  This is an unprecedented opportunity for CLC to showcase our offerings.  It is also an excellent way for us to give back to our communities and our veterans. Those veterans wishing to pursue educational options will have an opportunity to speak with admissions staff and enroll at CLC during EZ Enrollment on Thursday, June 28.
At the mid-point of the Career Expo a "Celebration of Veterans" will take place in the Chalberg Theatre.  The celebration will be led by our college veterans, military leadership, and congressional representatives.  During the celebration CLC student veterans will thank all our veterans for their service to our country.
