The Mentoring Project is an all-inclusive voluntary program that creates an opportunity for our past and present United States Coast Guard workforce (Active Duty, Reserve, Enlisted, Officers, Civilian, Auxiliary, Retirees) and our affiliated affinity groups to connect to one another in the form of a structured mentoring relationship.
Connection to experienced professionals. Structured time to self-reflect and ask the important questions to help you move forward in your career and personal life. A time and place to enhance awareness of your values. An avenue for accountability of your goals.
Renews career enthusiasm. Provides a greater understanding of the barriers experienced at different levels. Enhances your skills in coaching, counseling, listening, and modeling. An excellent opportunity to give back.
By creating a community for your unit, your Chiefs Mess, or your affinity group, you can create a community of connected mentors within your cause. Mentoring is proven to improve work place climate, inclusion, morale, and professionalism.
The Mentoring Project mentor/mentee database is managed through Member Planet. Please submit your request to participate in the program by choosing which role you prefer. You will be redirected to Member Planet to complete your request to participate. Once you are approved you will receive an e-mail with further instructions.
