About Us

Established on November 26, 2012

As of October 2018, we have had over 600+ students attend our Prep Connect 360 workshops! These service members, veterans, and military spouses are now making a difference in Colorado Springs and around the world.

 

Prep Connect 360 Workshops

Prep Connect 360 is a 5-day workshop facilitated by career professionals and veterans from the Colorado Springs community. Conducted in conjunction with the Pikes Peak Workforce Center, topics include career assessments, interviewing, career goal development, social media, employer-connections, networking, and more!

The highlight of the course are mock interviews conducted by community business partners as a culmination of several days of intense preparation. These interviews provide not only excellent practice for the workshop attendees, but also enable employers to connect with career-ready veterans and military spouses with exceptional character, outstanding skill sets and broad life experiences.
