RAVE (Rotarians Aiding Veterans Education)
RAVE is a much needed charitable program to assist our military veterans attain their educational goals by way of the G.I. Bill of Rights. It is a 501(c)(3) approved non-profit tax deductible program that is spear-headed by the Livermore Rotary Club. Society has become increasingly moreaware, sometimes painfully, that our veterans– men and women who served our country– find themselves at a loss as to be fully informed of their entitlements under the G.I. Bill regarding education.
Reduction of federal financial support has created several problems in this area. A recent federal study found that East Bay Veteran’s affairs takes up to one year before reviewing a Veteran’s file.
RAVE’s goal is to extend that effort to see that Veterans attending Las Positas College are properly counseled to be enrolled in a G.I. Bill approved academic and vocational program. It is intended that this assistance will lead veterans to a successful and satisfying ca reer and become productive members of our society.
Las Positas College is steadfast in its support of student veterans and its pledge to provide a comprehensive program that increases opportunities for success in college and beyond.
