Mentors are able to provide peer-to-peer support and assistance to veterans’ who have adjustment challenges. The mentors will help veterans: readjust to civilian life, become introduced to various veterans’ organizations that provide community support, connect with treatment and services, navigate the court system, and act as a sponsor and advocate. Mentors are required to be veterans themselves, having served, or continuing to serve in any of the armed forces, reserves, or National Guard. A copy of their DD-214 will be required to be submitted along with their application.
This peer mentor relationship promotes and fosters through encouragement a "can do" attitude in the veteran, that the veteran can accomplish their goals, that the veterans’ are not alone and that the mentors are there for them.
