Veteran Leader Corps
CCMW is proud to participate in Veteran Leader Corps (VLC), an AmeriCorps program of Points of Light, that supports Veterans' community engagement and career readiness. CCMW's VLC Members serve as Veteran Student Success Coordinators on higher education campuses in Colorado. In exchange for 1,700 hours of national service, VLC Members receive a $12,100 stipend and Education Award of $5,645. Members serving 900 hour terms earn a living stipend of $6,050 and an Education Award of $2,823.
Veteran Student Success Coordinators work closely with Veteran-serving offices at institutions of higher education to map and connect Veteran students to available resources to support their persistence in and graduation from college as well as their successful transition to the civilian workforce. Specifically, Veteran Student Support Coordinators develop and oversee peer and professional mentoring programs; connect Veteran students with career counseling and job readiness training; and create high quality volunteer service events in conjunction with national days of service for Veteran students, their families, and the community at large.
