Weekend Warrior Workshops for Veterans


The Arc + Flame Center has partnered with the Rochester Veterans Outreach Center to provide 8-hour introductory workshops this Summer. These workshops are specifically taught by Arc + Flame’s faculty who are military veterans. Going through the transition into civilian life can be difficult, but we’re here to help. Whether you’re looking at a new career or just need to blow off some steam, let us be your outlet. Our entire staff is dedicated to training opportunities for the men and women who have served our country.

Registration is first come, first served and there is no cost for veterans to attend! To sign up, contact Robin Gore at robin.gore@vocroc.org or call 585-295-7804.
