Important note:

The East Tennessee Veterans Treatment Court Committee has confirmed from the feedback from three Veteran Treatment Court Mentor 2 day training events (whether called a Boot Camp or Orientation) is the training is more of an introduction to the VTC program is more of an introduction to the VTC program and not a intensive boot camp or trained mentor entering orientation.  The Veteran mentors need much more training to be able to mentor a Justice Involved Veteran.  Our program provides additional online training and OJT (on the job) training to assure we have the best trained mentors to serve our brothers and sisters

It is critical that volunteer mentors in Veterans Treatment Court receive training on how to effectively and responsibly mentor program participants.

The two-day Justice For Vets Mentor Corps Boot Camp provides critical training for Volunteer Veteran Mentors wanting to be of service and assistance to their fellow veterans. During the Mentor Corps Boot Camp, volunteer veterans will learn how to effectively mentor struggling veterans participating in a Veterans Treatment Court. Course-work includes examining the roles, responsibilities and boundaries of veteran mentors; the unique issues facing combat veterans; and how to swiftly connect mentee veterans to the local, state and national services and benefits they have earned.

Justice For Vets is honored to offer our Mentor Corps Boot Camp to individual jurisdictions or states. We will work with you to develop a training that fits your budget and meets your needs.

If you are interested, please contact Major General (ret) Clyde 'Butch' Tate at [email protected] or for more information visit Justice For Vets Mentor Corps webpage.
