Paperwork, classes, syllabi, resumes, job interviews—with everything else on their minds, student veterans shouldn’t have to worry about buying a suit too. Plus, many of our student veterans went directly from high school into the military and lack business attire to wear to job interviews. Help our graduating veterans go from boots to suits by funding the cost of business attire to help them put their best foot forward during the job interview process.
Give a business suit to a student veteran and give back to someone who has given so much for our country.
Thanks to a generous donation from PCL Construction, CU Denver is suiting up our graduating class of student veterans. But we still need your help to ease veterans’ transitions back to education and careers. Organizations and individuals can offset the cost of these suits through a donation of just $500 per student veteran.
To get involved, contact the Office of Veteran Student Services at 303-556-2630 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
PCL Construction not only builds communities through complex projects using steel and concrete, but more importantly, builds hope for individuals and families through its many philanthropic efforts that focus on the areas of education, community development, the arts, health and well-being, and the environment.
PCL is a learning organization and has found that mentoring can be an effective learning tool. Both mentors and mentees alike benefit from this two-way relationship, or “each one – teach one” as they like to describe their mentoring philosophy.
PCL values higher education, supporting military individuals, workforce development, mentoring, and internships—so the CU Denver Boots to Suits program is a perfect fit for them!
