Work Study Opportunity
Military & Veterans Programs is accepting VA Work Study applications for our Centennial office. Must be using VA Education Benefits and enrolled at 3/4 time or more.
Peer Mentoring Program
Peer mentors are military veterans, spouses and dependents who understand students' challenges. Many students report feeling overwhelmed by college life and the VA benefits process. Your designated peer mentor will use their own experience, hindsight and success strategies to help you achieve your goals during your time at PPCC.
Your peer mentor will provide you with:
- Monthly or as needed meet-ups
- Social support
- Academic support
- Career exploration
- A chance to compete for a $1,000 scholarship upon semester completion
You can expect your peer mentor to have completed at least 2 semesters at PPCC with a designated GPA and commitment to finish or transfer. We match potential mentors based on academic majors, military service, personal goals and hobbies.
MVP's Lending Library
We will take your used books and lend them to other military-connected students in need. Textbooks are free to check out every semester and must be returned the week after finals.
Our library has been stocked 100% by donations from the PPCC campus community. You can help us develop our library by donating your old textbooks. The larger the collection, the more veterans and dependents we can help. If you would like to donate, bring your old textbooks to MVP (C222) anytime during business hours.
If you are in need of a book, please follow the steps below:
- Request access.
- Once we receive your request, we will send you a link to sign up for our online library powered by Librarika where you can view all the available books and place a reservation request. Placing a reservation request does not confirm availability.
- Once you request the book, we will email you whether your book(s) are or are not available to be picked up within 2 business days.
Books are first come, first served. We cannot ship books to students. You must be able to pick them up in person at the Centennial Campus (C222). If you do not pick up your book(s) within 2 business days of notification, we will issue them to the next student in the queue.
Fall semester requests will not be processed until Aug 16, 2019.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com
