Seeking Veteran Mentor Coordinator for Veterans Treatment Court

 

ACCC is now recruiting a qualified person to serve as a Veteran Mentor Coordinator.  This person would coordinate a team of volunteer mentors for justice-involved veterans who are participating in the Allen Circuit Veterans Court.

An important aspect of the court which distinguishes it from other treatment courts is a “mentor” who serves as a coach, guide, role model, advocate and a support person for the individual veteran participant with whom he or she is working. Mentors understand the roles of other support team members and “fill the gap” to help keep the participant moving successfully toward completing the veterans court program.

If you are interested in learning more about the Veteran Mentor Coordinator position, or serving as a Veteran Mentor, please contact Javier Zaragoza, ACCC General Operations Manager by calling (260) 449-7252, or send us a message through our webpage above.
