Care and Resources

Student Support Services

  • Mock-Interviews – This service helps students learn how to answer difficult questions, develop interview strategies, improve communication skills, and reduce stress before an actual interview.
  • Resume Assistance – This service provides one-on one-support to help students brainstorm, edit, and format the layout of a resume. Students will leave the program with a professionally completed resume.
  • Food Insecurity – Food insecurity is a lack of consistent access to enough food for every person in a household to live an active, healthy life. Our goal is to ensure that no member of the ATDM family goes hungry. As a result, we have a list of resources and services available to assist.
  • Academic Support – Trained peer and professional tutors are available to tutor specific subject areas and to assist students in developing effective learning strategies.
  • Housing – ATDM students will be provided with housing in the Danville River District during the four-month training. Apartments are furnished with access to a washer/dryer inside the apartment building. Internet is provided as well.
  • Transportation – Transportation to and from class will be provided to ATDM students.
  • Healthcare – Students will access a community resource guide that provides information for basic healthcare needs.
  • Clothing – Students will have access to resources that provide free emergency clothing to people that have an immediate need for clothing.
  • Veteran Benefits – ATDM staff will work with veterans to provide opportunities and services that may be useful.
  • Technology – ATDM staff will work with students who need technology outside of class hours. The goal of this service is to remove the technological barrier outside of class.
  • OSHA Training – All students will be required to complete the OSHA-10 training prior to starting class. The training will be available to each student during the onboarding process.
  • Job Relocation Assistance – Non-sponsored career seeking students who complete the Accelerated Training in Defense Manufacturing (ATDM) program may be eligible to receive financial assistance when relocating from the ATDM program to a full-time SIB/DIB job.
  • Job Interviewing Assistance – Non-sponsored students who are seeking employment in the SIB/DIB industry may be eligible for financial assistance and support with the job interview process.
  • Childcare – If there is a need for childcare, students will be provided with a list of potential childcare facilities whose hours can accommodate their need 24/7.
