The Warrior Mentorship Program connects Dallas area veterans, service members, and spouses (Protégés) with business professionals (Mentors) for a year-long mentorship. Mentors and Protégés are paired based on career objectives, background, and professional experience. The goals of the mentorship program are defined between Mentors and Protégés through regular discussions and meetings, and a personalized action plan is created and implemented to achieve those goals. Pairing Protégés with Mentors creates a network of support outside the standard channels, and enables the Protégé to reach his or her full potential as they transition into corporate careers.
Individuals who serve as Mentors are usually selected by their employer and recommended to Allies in Service. Mentors are successful and caring professionals who enjoy being part of a support network for veterans. These individuals guide, coach, listen and encourage each of our Protégés to become successful leaders in our community.
Any veteran, service member, or their spouse who has honorably served in any branch of service is eligible to apply for the program as a Protégé. The Warrior Mentorship Program is a competitive program with a limited number of Protégé openings, so it is important to complete the application. The application will be used to evaluate strength as a candidate as well as assist Allies in Service in finding the best possible Mentor.
All Protégés participate in a program orientation, mock interview, monthly meetings and one-on-one mentoring with a designated Mentor. Allies in Service Mentors act as an extra set of eyes and ears for our Protégés as they establish career goals, seek professional development opportunities, network, and negotiate employment offers.
