The Lioness Odyssey Program is a new mentorship initiative designed to connect female military veterans under the age of fifty (50), with a female military veteran mentor who is over the age of fifty (50). The female veteran community has often been labeled the silent portion of the veteran community and that silence has led to a lack of communication about services and programs. The launch of the Lioness Odyssey Program is our concerted effort to re-establish the lines of communication and encourage women to speak up about their experiences.
Mentee/Mentor Participants will be asked to:
- Have weekly contact with their mentor/mentee
- Plan a monthly outing with their mentor/mentee
- Attend a quarterly session, hosted by Zahara Veterans Network, Inc.
- Commit to the yearlong program (April 2018-April 2019)
Applications for this program will be accepted until March 01, 2018. Space is limited, early registration is suggested. Participants selected will be based on the mentor to mentee ratio and life experiences of applicants.
