This is a one-to-one relationship building program, between passionate individuals in the United State and carefully selected combat veterans needing help in Israel. Our relationship mentoring program is designed to build long-lasting relationships between the soldier and their mentor. By listening to their stories and helping them to establish and achieve their life and career goals, the mentor becomes a source of inspiration and motivation in most cases.
The relationship mentoring program provides a safe and meaningful outlet for most of the soldiers and helps them de-stress and get focused. Beginning with establishing their SMART goals and a path to achieve them, the mentors stimulate the soldiers to take action and improve their lives. Mentors learn the needs, wants and desires of their soldier and communicate with them through a combination of phone calls and texts, as well as group update meetings with all the soldiers and mentors. The results are quite meaningful and life changing for the soldiers.
Making a difference, one soldier at a time is our mantra. To have a real impact on soldiers with PTS, we build trust and relationships over time through structured mentoring on a one-to-one basis. Israel Heart2Heart provides what is called “Relationship Mentoring”; where US volunteer mentors open their hearts to the hearts of our wounded warriors in Israel, our mentees. It is through this approach that our name, Israel Heart2Heart was born.
“When I met my Israel Heart2Heart mentor, my life changed. She spoke with me, listened to me, guided me and taught me. I learned how to manage my time and put things in order. My mentor gave me tools. When I have a busy and intense week… I now know how to use my time wisely. Therefore, I am much more productive. I actually get things done!!! My mentor gave me a gift. For that, I am very, very thankful to Israel Heart to Heart.”
Our mission is to make an impact on the lives of wounded Israeli soldiers with PTS. Through our soldier mentoring program between Israel and South Florida and our trauma-based yoga program in Israel, Israel Heart2Heart provides Israeli combat veterans with a platform to heal, grow and excel, allowing them the opportunity to better their lives.
