Studies show that women who have served in the United States military are facing greater challenges than their male counterparts when they return to civilian life. Too often, they are flying under the radar when it comes to the assistance they need.
For this reason, the National Veterans Transition Services, Inc. (NVTSI) is conducting a three-week program funded by Ford Motor Company called, the Freedom’s Sisters Reboot, to address the unique needs of female veterans. Freedom’s Sisters Reboot will address personal, lifestyle and career transitional issues.
A key component of the program will be an opportunity for the female veteran participants to benefit from the one-on-one mentoring from a successful local community leader.
REBOOT’s Mentor Program
Workforce research reinforces the fundamental value of mentoring and the measurable impact of one-on-one coaching. The REBOOT Mentor model is designed to engage a cross section of veteran and civilian mentors who provide insights, advice and encouragement to steer women veterans and military/veteran spouses on individualized courses of action in the civilian workplace. Program participants enter the REBOOT Mentoring Program as members seeking access to tools, resources or one-to-one confidential guidance, with the flexibility to change their status as needed/desired.
REBOOT’s Veteran Mentor Program connects Female Veteran Mentees with Mentors for a year-long mentorship. Paired based on their career objectives and professional experience, Mentors and Mentees define the goals of their mentorship together and focus on a successful transition from the military to the civilian workforce.
