TRACK program prepares veterans for college

Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Individuals who serve in the military and engage in combat are fully aware that they could sustain serious injuries that may result  in a permanent disability. However, regardless of these setbacks, many veterans remain committed to their dream of earning a college degree.

According to Veterans Inc., a national organization that works to end homelessness among veterans, one in 10 veterans is disabled; more than 20,000 disabled veterans received serious injuries while serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. Former servicemembers who are recovering from both physical and psychological wounds sustained during these recent conflicts may benefit from a program that will ease their transition from the military to college.

One such program is  the Wounded Warrior Project’s TRACK which is designed for veterans who were injured during Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom, and who have yet to earn a college degree.

According to the organization’s Web site, during this 12-month program, located in Jacksonville, Florida and San Antonio, Texas, eligible participants will receive educational, vocational, and health and wellness support to prepare them for college enrollment or the workforce. Pre-college courses cover such topics as English and math, and all completed work can be applied to students’ associate’s or bachelor’s degree.

After taking classes for nine months, veterans can get a better sense of the type of college major they may pursue by gaining work experience with employers in either Jacksonville or San Antonio during the final three months of the program.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800782171-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
