Earn while you learn
Like most American college students, many EVIT alumni who go on to college work while they are in school. But these former EVIT students are not working any job; instead they are working in their field of study thanks to the training they received at EVIT. Not only is it a practical way to help pay for college, but it also allows them to gain valuable experience to put on their resume. Read more:

This week’s update from HOSA Arizona Future Health Professionals shone the spotlight on EVIT’s HOSA chapter for being recognized by national HOSA for its fundraising for the Be the Match campaign. The students also traveled to Minnesota where they got to tour the Be the Match Biorepository. The biorepository stores research blood samples from donors and recipients whose transplants are facilitated by Be the Match. EVIT’s HOSA chapter also just raised $42,000 this fall to help students travel to upcoming state and international competitions.

Thank you for your support in helping EVIT change lives.
