CALL for MENTORS: Iraq, Afghan service vets need you...

PCW & (local/national) partners are offering a program of skill-building and mentoring for Iraq and Afghan service veterans. We have mentors; we will use more, now and in 2009. Email us if you're interested (via webmaster) ...


For '08-'09, the Princeton Club is partnering with national and local
groups to support the returning troops who've served overseas.

The program continues in 2009 so new mentors will be needed, as well.

PCW's program is "OPEN DOORS."  For a full description, go here


NOTE to CURRENT/POTENTIAL MENTORS:

We've had a great response from volunteers.

Starting Points for PROJECTDec. 2nd week (key transition session).

Many mentors get into action (see your emails) around 12/12.

We have many vets requesting help from this project now.


DURING 11/08--12/08, PCW launches a community action program to
support US military vets from Iraq/Afghanistan as they seek work.

FOCUS: "Transition Guides" + 2 months' Mentoring for vets. 

HOW CAN YOU CAN HELP AS A MENTOR?
Please offer us your time -- 1 hour weekly for 2 months (8 hours all told)
-- and you'll be giving the gift of attention that has a deep impact. You'll
be a sounding board for these newly-returned veterans, and using your
familiarity with the Washington region to help the vets reengage with their
work environment.  Contacts can be done by phone, online, in person,
or any combination of these three approaches.

If this is your first time as a mentor, you'll get help and guides.

KEY GUIDELINES for YOUR MENTORING MEETINGS
- Meetings for mentoring may be done in person or online.
- Check-Ins should be once-weekly (at critical times, more often)
- Monthly meetings should total (roughly) 4
- Mentors’ commitment is for 2 months, 8 meetings.

IN-DEPTH GUIDES, MATERIALS and DISCUSSIONS will support you.

You will have pointers for mentoring, and have an option to receive ideas
and join telecons that help you review your work.  This is a unique project,
helping an equally unique part of our community in the capital region.

Key ingredient: Familiarity with military vets and a willingness to help.
