VETERANS TREATMENT COURT NEEDS MENTORS


Veterans, please consider volunteering your time with the Veterans Treatment Court as a Mentor.  This is a worthwhile program that helps our Veterans when they need us the most.  For additional information please contact Colonel DJ Reyes at djreyes1957@gmail.com


our mentor force:

- All volunteers
- Male and female, E5 to O6, Army/Navy/Air Force/Marines, 5 years to +33 years of military service, Desert Storm to Afghanistan combat tours
- Currently 41 mentors (I started the program 2 years ago as the first mentor)
- 50% are active duty senior NCOs or officers at MacDill AFB - challenge of retention due to turnover and PCS cycles
- 38% are veterans currently employed in the legal, corporate or DoD industries
- 12% are the senior veteran mentors that manage 4 Task Force teams of mentors and their assigned veterans (total of 75)

So I am always recruiting to replenish our mentor bench which doesn't stay stable, in order to keep up with a constantly increasing veteran intake load.  We would graciously accept your involvement as mentors and are flexible in your degree of support.  Also, please pass the word out for any potential mentors in your community!  best regards, DJR
