The East Valley Veterans Education Center (EVVEC) provides educational outreach and college advisement services to veterans and their family members at no cost. We offer a “one-stop-shop” where veterans can get practical information about community resources and educational resources available to successfully pursue a college education. Additional services are provided by in-house educational and community partners.
