The objective of the Vet to Vet mentorship program at UH Mānoa is to assist veterans with a successful transition from military to college. The program hopes that the relationships established will form lasting bonds between students, faculty, and staff that will promote fellowship, well-being, and success.
Mentors are all volunteers and consist of veterans who are part of the UH Mānoa Faculty, Staff, and student body. Mentors draw from their own experience and knowledge to assist students in social, academic, extracurricular activities, and professional development.
- Assist students as they make the transition from military to college at UH Mānoa by providing general advice, assistance, and support through personal transition experiences.
- Utilize what you already know. You have the experience and wisdom as someone who has already gone through the process with registration, VA educational benefits, etc.
- Assist students in becoming involved in extracurricular activities, joining a Registered Independent Student Organization, and sports.
- If you’re involved in something on or off campus and your mentee is interested, bring him/her along.
Provide individual guidance and support to each veteran student participant over the course of his or her transition process into the university setting.
