Keystone College has received a $25,000 grant from AllOne Charities to partner with the non-profit organization Veterans Stand Together to provide education and training programs for veterans.
The Work, Earn and Learn (WEL) program will provide educational training to help prepare veterans for positions in the health care profession. As part of the program, participating veterans will serve as apprentices in local health care organizations enabling them to earn income as they learn their professional responsibilities and advance in their careers. The veterans will receive the required courses they need at Keystone College.
AllOne Charities is a local non-profit organization which helps fund local and regional, non-profit organizations whose initiatives help address some of Northeastern and North Central Pennsylvania’s most pressing health challenges. Based in Torrance, Cal., Veterans Stand Together (VST) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing programs and services to assist veterans and improve their lives through education and career skills. Keystone will be the VST’s headquarters for the eastern US.
With the lowest tuition of any private college in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Keystone offers more than 50 undergraduate and graduate degree options in liberal arts and science-based programs in business, communications, education, natural science, environmental science, and social sciences. Located 15 minutes from Scranton, Pa. and two hours from New York City and Philadelphia, Keystone is known for small class sizes and individual attention focused on student success through internships, research, and community involvement.
