Veterans treatment courts thrive, in part, because they facilitate veterans in the community to be of service to their fellow veterans in need by volunteering as mentors. It's critical that volunteer mentors in veterans treatment court receive training on how to effectively and responsibly mentor program participants. Justice For Vets Mentor Corps Boot Camp provides the foundation for a successful veteran mentor program for veterans treatment courts across the nation.
