About Israel Heart2Heart

Empowerment Mentors: Guiding to Healing

Empowerment Mentors are volunteers from the United States who support IDF veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The program is designed to help veterans heal from their trauma and rebuild their lives.

Empowerment Mentors provide emotional support, help veterans set and achieve goals, and connect them with resources in their community. They also serve as a listening ear and a source of understanding for veterans who may feel isolated or alone.

The Empowerment Mentor program is a vital part of Israel Heart2Heart’s mission to help IDF veterans heal and thrive. The program is completely confidential so veterans can feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and feelings with their mentor. Mentors are trained to provide support and guidance to veterans without judgment or criticism.

If you are interested in becoming an Empowerment Mentor, please visit the Israel Heart2Heart website. The website has more information about the program, including how to apply.

Here are some specific examples of how Empowerment Mentors can help IDF veterans:

  • Listen to veterans’ stories and offer comfort and understanding.
  • Help veterans identify their goals and develop a plan to achieve them.
  • Connect veterans with mental health professionals, support groups, and other resources in their community.
  • Be a safe space for veterans to share their thoughts and feelings without judgment.
  • Help veterans understand their experiences and how to cope with them.


The Empowerment Mentor program is a valuable resource for IDF veterans who are struggling with PTSD. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, I encourage you to visit the Israel Heart2Heart website today.
