VetSuccess at CNM  

We have partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide veterans with a VetSuccess Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor. 

Our counselor assists all veterans as they transition from the military to civilian and college life. The Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor provides veterans with variety of services designed to create success at CNM.

Contact us to schedule an appointment with our VetSuccess Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor.

Sky Warriors Program

Our Sky Warriors Program is a great example of support, where veterans work together as a team to learn how to fly a hot air balloon while experiencing Mission, Purpose and Focus. This program is proven to be highly successful to reduce forms of anxiety and PTSD with veterans. 

Contact us for more information on the support programs we offer and see the news story to learn more about the program.
