Vets Restore is a collaboration of 4Culture, Historic Seattle, the King County Veterans’ Program, and Seattle Central Community College. The program goals include:
+ Helping returning veterans transition to civilian life with work that is meaningful and valued in the community
+ Connecting local veterans to jobs in the growing field of building rehabilitation
+ Conserving resources by bringing new life to vintage houses, commercial buildings, schools, depots, churches, and halls
The Vets Restore initiative relies on critical contributions from project partners:
+ 4Culture – providing seed funding, recruiting construction industry mentors, and running a media campaign to reach returning vets.
+ Historic Seattle – contributing hands-on job experiences at significant historic structures around Seattle.
+ King County Veterans’ Program - providing case management, tuition navigation support, carpentry tools and gear, transportation assistance, paid internships, and employment guidance.
+ Seattle Central Community College – offering a Certificate of Completion for the new remodel and preservation course at its state-of-the-art Wood Technology Center, with an option to pursue a Certificate in Carpentry or a full AAS degree.
