WWP Peer Mentoring

Program Description

The WWP Peer Mentoring program is a recovery-based program. All peer mentors are either warriors or caregivers themselves. Peer mentors serve a variety of roles -- as supporters, role models, motivators, and guides. WWP Peer mentors undergo training during which they learn skills and tips to facilitate each role.

In addition to the formal mentoring program, many WWP programs offer opportunities for member veterans ("WWP alumni") to meet, support, and inspire more recently injured warriors.
