CCMA Germanna Values Veterans VISTA Project
 
 
 
Veteran mentoring initiatives impact our service area by providing under-resourced Veterans with academic and nonacademic mentoring. The relationships built through mentoring will help our Veteran population persist in college and reach graduation. For many Veterans, just one positive and supportive relationship can make all the difference in their academic success and personal development. Mentors can help Veterans by assisting them navigate and maximize their GI BillĀ®, or other benefit, support, and resources for medical issues such as PTSD or special accommodations Germanna offers. Mentoring can help Veterans with resources that will help promote their potential and could help them become more resilient in the face of personal, financial, and academic challenges. Veteran mentors beginning their sophomore year, would be recruited by the VISTA, as their own personal experience is a key tool in helping our new Veteran students and the challenges they face.
