Las Positas College to offer summer program for returning vets

'Operation Getaway' aimed at helping GIs get back into classroom

Los Positas College in Livermore has announced a new summer transition program designed to aid returning veterans in their quest for education, according to school officials.

The program, called "Operation Getaway - A Veteran's Transition to Success," is a four-day program that runs July 16-19 and consists of an orientation and workshop for returning veterans who want to further their education at Los Positas College, school officials said.

The program will serve a minimum of 25 veterans each session. The seminar will include in-depth education and career planning, classroom expectations, finance and benefits information, campus life, community resources and veteran support services, according to school officials.

Veterans who participate in the program and are enrolled for at least 75 percent of the time at Los Positas College will receive a book stipend for the fall semester, school officials said.
