Overview:
A student veteran to student veteran mentoring program has the potential to have a significant impact on campuses and communities across the country, both financially and transitionally. This webinar will describe the successes, failures, and best practices of student-to-student mentoring programs for student veterans.

Participants will learn how to determine:
  • Number of Post-9/11 veterans in their city and county
  • Number of deployed Guard/Reservists in their city and county (These veterans are most at risk due to ongoing deployments and disruptions to their academic career.)
  • Percent of undiagnosed PTSD cases among their current student veteran population
  • Potential number of GI Grads from their current campus enrollment

Participants will discover what grants and free programs are available that will help them create a program on their campus. They will also receive a step-by-step outline on how to create a student veteran to student veteran mentoring program, complete with timeline, types of student veterans to certify, and certification materials.
