Students in Woodbridge, Virginia, mostly injured military veterans, will soon celebrate a special milestone. They will be recognized as graduates from the Information Technology Training Program (ITTP) at Global Connections to Employment (GCE) during an inaugural recognition ceremony.

The ceremony will be held at Hilton Garden Inn Woodbridge, 2500 Neabsco Common Place, Woodbridge, VA on Thursday, April 28, from 8:00 to 11:00 a. m. (Refreshments will be served.)

GCE is a top 25 nonprofit provider under the AbilityOne® Network. Congress started the federal program now known as AbilityOne in 1938 to help ensure that people who are blind and have other significant disabilities find employment. GCE is a contractor that helps persons with disabilities who qualify for the AbilityOne Network receive training and find employment. ITTP Students are hired as full-time employees and earn an hourly wage while working toward certification in IT.

“Components of our program have a level of relevance for defense contractors not found in some four-year degree programs,” said GCE President and CEO, Rich Gilmartin. “Our plan is that graduates will apply their knowledge in an IT career with our company or another IT firm.”
