National Network of Veteran Mentoring Organizations
Building a National Network
Purple Star helps Veterans navigate the trials of homecoming and transition by helping them solve their current challenges and by connecting them to effective mentors and mentoring organizations.
Veterans relate to other Veterans.
Purple Star is here to direct and refer Veterans and families in need to the appropriate resource. We work in partnership with and in support of a network of trusted, established mentoring programs and organizations. Our Peer Advisors work with each veteran to qualify their specific needs and interests, and provide a personal introduction to the right mentoring organization. Each Veteran will receive the direct support and mentorship from fellow veterans, as well as qualified business and community leaders.
The first step is to sign up for a Purple Star Peer Advisor session. During your conversation, your Peer Advisor will learn more about you, explain more about the various mentorship programs and make the appropriate referral.
Veteran Mentoring Organizations
Mentors 4 Soldiers
Mentors 4 Soldiers is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was created in order to match successful Veterans in the civilian community with Veterans / soldiers. This partnership will provide a resource to those soldiers currently exiting the military. A soldier re-entering the civilian community comes with some challenges. These challenges are mostly in understanding what technical and non-technical career opportunities exist and just where to begin. With the advice of successfully transitioned Veterans they will gain a resource which should increase their odds of a successful transition.
The eMentor Leadership Program uses the power of the internet to efficiently and effectively help match and support mentoring relationships that result in positive outcomes for both protégé and mentor participants. eMentor is dedicated to every participant having a positive program experience that clearly and measurably moves them towards achieving their personal and professional goals.
The Veteran eMentor Program leverages the internet to create a dynamic information sharing, learning and support community that extends far beyond the veteran’s current network. We welcome protégés who served in the Armed Forces and are now seeking civilian employment or assistance with any aspect of the transition to civilian life. Protégés can receive personalized career guidance, advice, support and inspiration from more experienced veterans, career mentors and veteran-friendly employers. We also invite mentors, with or without a military experience, to join and assist protégés with their job search and other career challenges.
