WWMP Mentors are trusted, dedicated Volunteers who work one-on-one with Wounded Warriors during their recovery and transition to a productive and meaningful life after leaving the Warrior Transition Unit (WTU).
The Mentor assists Wounded Warriors and their families set goals, usually for a 3-to-5 year time frame, for life after leaving the WTU. The emphasis of this planning process is on education, internships and employment. Mentors can also assist Warriors in identifying, understanding and applying for other benefits – whatever is needed to assist Warriors and their families achieve their goals.
Mentors come from all walks of life. Most are military academy graduates from West Point, the Naval Academy or the Air Force Academy plus retired Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps Officers and senior Non-Commissioned Officers to include Special Operations Forces and military Nurses. Most Mentors have had successful private sector careers and many Mentors are combat veterans.
