Volunteer Veteran Mentors
In Veterans Treatment Courts, veterans volunteer their time and energy to assist their fellow veterans with mentoring, including offering support securing housing, employment linkages, job training, education, transportation, disability compensation claims, discharge status and other linkages available at the local, state and federal level.
Currently, volunteer Veteran Mentors in Veterans Treatment Courts are culled from a variety of sources including law enforcement, local bar associations, institutions of higher education, chambers of commerce and veterans in the community at-large. The nation’s leading Veteran Service Organizations such as the American Legion, AMVETS, and Veterans of Foreign Wars have endorsed Veterans Treatment Courts and encourage their membership to volunteer.
