More Details

Overview- Mentoring is one of our most used Resources. The program is designed to pair up a Veteran or the family member of a Veteran with a mentor who can offer guidance, suggestions, advice, and tips on their transition and current struggles. This can include anything from helping a Vet prepare for an interview to brainstorming what fields they want to work in to identifying their strengths and how to showcase them. Our mentors will be a consistent face to help the mentee with specific goals.

Each mentoring session is 30-45 minutes long and the Mentee is required to submit goals for you to focus on. The Mentor is able to view these beforehand in order to prepare for the meeting. All meetings are held through our site in order to protect your confidential information. All calls are done via video so you can see the person you are mentoring.
