Upcoming Training
For Veterans

FOR VETERANS

C2C’s primary focus is enabling transitioning Servicemembers with no anticipated source of income in their search for civilian employment.  That enablement comes via interview and resumes training, specific skills workshops, and supportive client services. 

We have partners and resource referrals available for retiree transitioning Servicemembers.  Don’t hesitate to ask us to connect you with one of our fantastic partners!

Check out our Upcoming Training tab to see what training opportunities we have coming up.   Questions about how we can assist through your transition? Stop in to see us at Hawk Transition Center or send us an email at c2c@pacmtn.org

For Spouses

FOR SPOUSES

Spouses are eligible for C2C support as well!  Just as transitioning Servicemembers, we have partners and resources available for spouses as they transition out of the military lifestyle with their Servicemember. 

Check out our Upcoming Training tab to see what training opportunities we have coming up.   Questions about how we can assist with your transition? Stop in to see us at Hawk Transition Center or send us an email at c2c@pacmtn.org

For Businesses

FOR BUSINESSES

We want you to connect with a talented workforce. 

Between 8000-9000 Servicemembers were expected to transition from Active Duty each year through 2017.  Pacific Mountain WDC (PacMtn) thought it would be a great idea to maximize the economy and to keep that transitioning talent here in the Pacific Northwest. 

C2C and PacMtn work together to be that conduit and pipeline between employers and transitioning Servicemembers and their spouses.  C2C is a federally funded program on a mission to assist transitioning Servicemembers and spouses take the next, or often first, step in their civilian careers. 

HOW C2C WORKS FOR EMPLOYERS

By hiring one of our program participants, you not only get a highly skilled employee, but you also can offset the initial cost of training that employee.  Here’s what you would benefit from:

  • Reimbursement of up to 50% of the participant’s wages during their initial training period (for up to 3 months)
  • Claim a Federal Tax Credit for each participant hired
  • An employee with extensive training and skills that are easily transferred to the civilian job market

Contact us at c2c@pacmtn.org to become a C2C Employer.
