SVF Mentor Documents and Application

SVF Mentor Handbook

With the help of the Spokane Veterans Court and our fellow Mentors, we created a Handbook to help all Mentors serve their Mentees. This link takes you to that Handbook. Like other resources, this document is a work in process. It is a Handbook, not a Rulebook.

Mentor Handbook Updated: March 2017

The Handbook is a support document to the monthly Mentor Training.  This meeting provides Mentors with knowledge and skills in the areas they need in order to be effective as Mentors.
