Education Center

The Air Force Voluntary Education Program supports Force Development by maintaining a highly educated force.

The program supports off-duty voluntary education goals for active duty Air Force and Air National Guard in the

National Capital Region (NCR).  The Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Education and Training Center’s goal is to inspire and promote quality education and training and to promote life-long learning to the entire force. 

We accomplish this by meeting the needs of our customers through multi-faceted programs and services.
