The Volunteer Veteran Mentor Training Program establishes supportive relationships between veterans and program participants.
As advocates and allies, volunteer mentors coach, guide and act as role models for veterans. Volunteer mentors may help with readjustment issues, including anger management, impulse control, conflict resolution skills and other issues that create a difficult reentry into civilian life.
Volunteer mentors may assist the veteran to navigate through treatment, the Veterans Court and the U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs system, but they do not assume the role of attorneys or treatment providers.
To become a volunteer mentor, submit an application to the office of the court administrator in the county where you would like to volunteer. A list of district court administrators is available for your convenience.
