Veterans Sought for Court Mentoring Program

The not-for-profit group Pro Vet U.S. is seeking military veterans to help mentor fellow service members who are struggling with service-related addiction, mental health issues, and/or other co-occurring disorders.

The program is called a Veteran Treatment Court, which is a problem solving program for veterans receiving ongoing judicial and probation supervision led by a judge. The program promotes sobriety, recovery and stability through a collaboration with the Veteran’s Affairs, community-based treatment providers, and support from these mentors.

Those wishing to become mentors will have the option to help in the Middletown City Court or in Westchester County. The requirements to help out include previous service in the U.S. Armed Forces, adhering to the Veterans Treatment Court rules, committing to mentoring for at least one year, completing a screening and training process, meeting with program participants, and attending court sessions as a mentor when necessary.

ProVetus will provide free training to anyone who becomes a mentor. Training will be completed online via Zoom on August 9, August 16, and August 23, 2022 from 6:00pm to 8:30pm.
