Become A Mentor

Mentors provide support to Veterans engaged with the Veterans Treatment Court (VTC). The volunteer mentors are typically veterans themselves.

Mentors have the ability to act as a role model, coach, guide, and advocate for their Veteran mentee.

Veterans Treatment Court

Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas operates a Veterans Treatment Court (VTC). It is designed to provide continued support and resources for our Veterans involved within the Court.

The Veteran must have been honorably discharged from service and subject to the jurisdiction of the Common Pleas Court in order to participate. It typically takes 12-18 months for a Veteran to complete the phase program.

 

Volunteer Mentor Program

The Volunteer Mentor Program is overseen by the Mentor Coordinator and Veterans Legal Counsel at the Montgomery County Veterans Service Commission. Mentors are assigned to Veterans based on compatibility and availability. Mentors provide peer support and guidance to Veterans and report to the Mentor Coordinator.

The Mentors, Mentor Coordinator, and Legal Counsel attend the Court docket every two weeks. Mentors assist Veteran mentees with navigating their recovery process through the VA and other resources.


Who Are The Volunteer Mentors?

Mentors provide support to Veterans engaged with the Veterans Treatment Court (VTC). The volunteer mentors are typically veterans themselves.

Mentors have the ability to act as role models, coaches, guides, and advocates for their Veteran mentees. Mentors work closely with the presiding Judge of the VTC, the VA Veterans Justice Outreach Coordinator, and other Court personnel.
