VTC Mentor Program Mission Statement

The Colorado Veterans Treatment Court Mentor Programs provide overall support, advocacy, and mentorship for military veterans involved in the criminal justice system to increase their chances of successful rehabilitation and community reintegration by pairing trained mentors with participants to help with their transition out of the criminal justice system

 

Why Mentoring?

Veteran treatment courts are a type of problem-solving court serving military veterans struggling with alcohol and substance use disorders, mental health disorders, and traumatic brain injuries. Veteran courts present an alternative to incarceration, as they divert veterans away from the traditional criminal justice system and instead offer a program that provides tailored treatment plans to participating veterans. A team of legal and treatment professionals collaborate to provide veteran participants with the essential tools necessary for them to be successful with both maintaining sobriety and reducing the likelihood for reoffending.

Each veteran court in Colorado includes a dedicated team of volunteer mentors as part of their overall court team. Mentor programs were established to offer social support to participating veterans by linking them with a volunteer mentor. Volunteer mentors regularly assist with transportation, emotional support, and connecting veterans with VA resources (healthcare & benefits). Volunteers receive training across a variety of fields designed to equip them with the essential tools to be successful in their mentoring activities. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please complete an application and email to the Lead Peer Mentor Coordinator (LPMC) in the district you are interested in volunteering with. An LPMC will be in contact with you to discuss the volunteer opportunity.
