March 16-April 3, 2015
Making the transition back to civilian life from the war front to the home front can be a difficult challenge, especially for the newer and younger generation of service-men and women who were deployed several times to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Studies show that women veterans face greater challenges than their male counterparts. Yet there are very few pro-grams to help them reassimilate into civilian life.
The Michigan Veterans Affairs agency is hosting a Women Veterans REBOOT Workshop™ March 16-April 3. Designed to meet the unique needs of women veterans as they transition from military to civilian life, the REBOOT Workshop™ is the nation’s only transition program of its kind that provides female veterans with the tools they need to succeed.
REBOOT Workshops™ are a series of hands-on educa-tional seminars developed by the National Veterans Transi-tion Services, Inc., that promote a successful social transi-tion from military service to civilian life.
The goal of the workshop is to assist veterans:
ReLearn Change the way they think.
ReBuild Find their passion!
ReBrand Prepare for their next career.
