The REACH-SSS Program provides counseling opportunities for students. Our certified counselors may assist you with short-term personal counseling, career counseling, and academic advising.
Often during an academic year, many students are faced with personal concerns that may interfere with their continued success here at VWCC. Our certified counselors can assist you with issues that may include: grief counseling, identity issues, family concerns, situational depression, stress management, anxiety concerns, etc. Please contact your assigned REACH counselor to begin working on these concerns as soon as you notice them.
Our philosophy in the REACH program is that if you know your career track and your goals, you will be more successful in your program of studies. However, if you do not know, we have the expertise to assist you in finding a career that is a good match for your personality and talents. We will be happy to help you in determining the correct path for you. Our counselors can work with you to determine your personality, values, and interests and match them with occupations that people with the same personality, values and interests have been successful in and enjoy.
Our counselors will advise you honestly and with your best interests at heart. We can assist you in choosing classes in your curriculum as well as instructors who seem to teach to your learning style. We encourage all of our students to work closely with their REACH counselors when choosing classes. Often, we can offer early registration.
We use VW Alert to immediately contact you during a major crisis or emergency.
