Matching Connections Are Now Happening!
Enrollment continues on an ongoing basis
About the Program
In April 2021, the Coast Guard launched the new Coast Guard Mentoring Program designed to offer expanded leadership opportunities and connection for our active duty, reservist and civilian workforce. The program goes beyond traditional mentoring and offers 4 types of mentoring “tracks” or connections tailored specifically to individual needs and scheduling preferences. It's powered by software that can automatically match thousands of mentors and mentees simultaneously based on their professional interests and backgrounds. Mentoring connections began May 1, and continue automatically on an ongoing basis.
And the best part is, it's FREE and accessible through any web-based or mobile platform.
Types of Mentoring Connections
To help you take your career to the next level, the Coast Guard Mentoring Program will offer four types of mentoring connections.
- One-to-One: Gain insight from senior leaders and develop new skills in one-to-one settings.
- Communities Marketplace (Circle Mentoring): Satisfy your unique learning needs via a peer-run networking group that focuses on topics and skills specific to you.
- Fresh Perspectives - Insight from Future Leaders: This unique and modern approach to mentoring empower emerging leaders to share their insight and point of view with senior leadership in a group setting.
- Flash Mentoring: Have a question about a specific topic or issue? Then Flash Mentoring is for you. This one-time session is a "speed mentoring concept", allowing you to gain insight in a concise manner.
