Seminole State to host Veterans Outreach events

The VA's Mobile Vet Center will visit Seminole State on March 27 and April 17.

The Veterans Affairs Office at Seminole State is partnering with the University of Central Florida to host Veterans Outreach events on March 27 and April 17 from 9 a.m. – 3  p.m. in the Partnership Center Breezeway at Seminole State’s Sanford/Lake Mary Campus.

The events, sponsored by the Veterans Integration To Academic Leadership (VITAL) program, will give veterans the opportunity to learn about benefits and services, enroll in healthcare benefits and obtain appropriate referrals.

“A lot of veterans get out of the service and aren’t aware of the benefits they’re entitled to receive,” says Jose Toro, veterans affairs specialist at Seminole State. “The outreach is important so Veterans Affairs can get the word out. All of the services veterans need will be provided at these events.”

Eligible veterans will have access to a broad range of counseling, outreach and referral services via a Mobile Vet Center, part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Vet Center program, which helps veterans adjust to civilian life post-war. The 40-foot vehicle will be stationed between the Partnership Center and Building H and is equipped with confidential counseling space for veterans who need counseling services.

Representatives from Seminole State’s VA Office, UCF’s Veterans Academic Resource Center and the Veterans Health Administration will also be on hand to answer questions and to offer assistance.

The events are free and open to all veterans.

Seminole State College’s Veterans Affairs Offices, located on all four campuses, are dedicated to serving as a one-stop source for veterans to secure, interpret and exercise their VA education benefits. For more information, visit the Veterans Affairs website.
