About Veteran Peer Mentor

Bc9e452f7e04c199bb7e20733571480e957786ed

All volunteers must first attend MVPN basic training or must have been trained by MVPN in the last three years.

Purpose: The position of a peer mentor is to serve as an advocate for a Veteran who may be transitioning into civilian life or may simply need a form of support. You have the option to do as little or as much as you feel comfortable. A Peer Mentor can mentor in many different ways. You can mentor one-on-one, in group settings, or social settings.

Key Responsibilities:
• Creating a safe, supportive environment for soldiers and Veterans who are readjusting after deployments or serving in the military.
• Mentoring Veterans by providing encouragement, support and resources.
• Maintaining a friendly, but professional relationship with your mentee.
• Report volunteer hours and Veteran referrals/rosters to MVPN Peer Services Coordinator at the END of EACH MONTH.

Application Process

Please send an email to jenny@samaritan-center.org and let us know why you are interested in this position. We look forward to having you aboard!
