Mentors: Mission Statement

Mission Statement:  Veteran Mentors will work to ensure that every participating veteran in the Shelby County Veterans Court program is linked with a fellow veteran who acts as a volunteer mentor, advocate, and ally to help the participants successfully readjust to civilian life

Procedure:  Veteran Mentors act as coach, guide, role model, ally and friend and offer support for the veteran participants.  Mentors encourage, guide, and support each participant through the court process.  This includes listening to the concerns of each veteran participant and making general suggestions, assisting with determining needs, and acting as a support.
