A VETERAN’S JOURNEY
Imagine you’re 15, and you already know what you want to do with the rest of your life. You have always been fascinated by war, by weapons and destruction. Of course you are naive, but you don’t know this, and you may never really figure this out. Click here to read the remainder of this Veteran’s journey.
I started Las Positas in numerous disciplines because I really didn't have a direction when I first stepped on campus. Within a year there, I had gained the confidence and expertise to pursue my education in Engineering at UC Berkeley. Receiving financial support such as my scholarship from Valley Veterans Foundation was instrumental in allowing me to focus on my academics and personal growth during college.
Valley Veterans Foundation (VVF) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization providing financial support and resources for military personnel and veterans pursuing post-secondary education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
Valley Veterans Foundation was incorporated on June 7, 2007 when community members realized there was a lack of information and assistance for veterans to acquire needed resources for successfully transitioning back into civilian life. VVF scholarships and activities are designed to help Tri-Valley veterans embark upon career paths with training, skills and resources necessary to become personally and professionally successful members of their communities.
