"For our Veterans there is nothing like connecting with and relying on a fellow Veteran. Our mentor program is connecting Veterans to a network of fellow Veterans who can provide support, advice, or simply a listening ear. Mentors may act as a coach, guide, role model, advocate, recovery support, mental health support, life support, or just simply an ally.
Being a mentor is simply about being there for a fellow Veteran. It is about making sure no Veteran feels alone, in a way that only a fellow Veteran can.
Mentoring is a form of peer support which is a key factor in helping people through crisis. Mentors are also key in assisting in developing necessary navigation and survival skills, adjusting to civilian life, and in improving quality of everyday lives."
