What is VTTV?
Veterans Talking to Veterans (VTTV) is a compelling program that trains veterans as coaches to support veterans thriving. With personal experience in military life, these skilled coaches possess a deep understanding of the unique challenges of veterans and their families.
Because no one understands the veterans experience like someone who has experienced military life, VTTV recruits veterans for this specialized approach. This is not a peer-to-peer program. VTTV coaches are professionals who understand the veterans experience from the inside out.
VTTV coaching groups serve as a powerful support system in the community, inspiring positive change and progress towards personal development, growth, and healing.
Some veterans and their families encounter traumatic experiences. VTTV Coaches are trained with unique, specialized trauma-informed coaching techniques. Leveraging storytelling as a natural response to trauma, VTTV Coaches tap into the powerful potential to stimulate veterans' natural self-healing abilities.
Through free community group coaching sessions, VTTV coaches partner with veterans to stimulate motivation, overcome trauma, and find new meaning and purpose in civilian life.
Storytelling is the backbone of healing and growth.
Veterans Talking to Veterans is truly a unique program designed specifically with Veterans in mind to help them achieve their goals in life with the support of those who have walked the same path they have.
With methods like group storytelling, the Hero’s Journey®️ Change Model, and The Way, Redefining your Health, Wealth, and Wisdom Coaching Game, clients transform destructive and harmful emotions into constructive and powerful sources of creativity and problem solving.
A New Professional Approach
Peer-to-peer groups offer valuable support by bringing individuals with shared experiences together. In contrast, VTTV coaching groups take it a step further, employing group coaching to fortify both individual and community motivation towards healing, growth, and action. Our trauma-informed coaching methodology is uniquely designed to cater to the specific needs of veterans, creating a safe and nurturing environment that fosters trust, empathy, and resilience. Through VTTV coaching groups, veterans find support not only in their personal healing journeys but also in becoming proactive agents of positive change within their communities. This collective approach promotes a sense of belonging, empowerment, and shared progress, fostering a stronger and more cohesive community as veterans heal, grow, and take meaningful action together. Mentor Agility's storytelling approach adds depth and transformation to the group coaching experience, guiding veterans towards lasting healing and personal growth, thus creating a ripple effect of positive impact for both individuals and the communities they belong to.
