Veterans Community Center classes

VFW Post 7507 proudly announces the opening of a Veterans Community Resource Center within the confines of its new Post Home at 9624 N Monterey Drive.  The first series of classes is  to begin on Wednesday nights begins today, October 26th at 6 p.m. at the Post Home.

With help from a grant funded by the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services made available through the Arizona Veterans’ Donations Fund, the Post has acquired computers and peripheral equipment to allow it to hold classes for active duty members and honorably discharged veterans.  Topics will include basic computer skills, career skills, job hunting techniques (possibly including skype or other video interview techniques); advanced computer skills such as using Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other computer applications/programs; and use of Social Media such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.  Additionally, classes and discussion of VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) benefits and health classes might be included in future programs.

The first class will be basic computer and e-mail skills intended for those with limited computer knowledge. It will include security issues and informational warnings on SPAM.  Classes are open to all honorably discharged veterans without regard to membership in the VFW.  Future topics will be based on student needs and desires.  The schedule will be posted on the Post’s website at http://vfwpost7507.org and the Post’s Facebook page.  Registration is not required for this class.

November classes will be held on Wednesdays November, 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 30th (no classes on November 23rd – day before Thanksgiving) at the Post Home from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
