About the Program

The Coast Guard Mentoring Program offers 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.

  • Collaborate and share resources with your peers anytime, anywhere
  • It's flexible. There are one-time, short-term and 6 month mentoring options

Types of Mentoring Connections

 To help you take your career to the next level, the Coast Guard Mentoring Program offers three types of mentoring connections.


  • One-to-One: Connect with a mentor, gain insight from senior leaders, develop new skills and pursue your personal and professional goals in a one-to-one setting via on ongoing or one-time "flash" connection.
  • Communities Marketplace: Satisfy your unique learning needs via a peer-run networking group that focuses on topics and skills specific to you. There are over 155 Communities to join including affinity groups, ratings, career specialties and more. Join as many or as few as you like to connect and collaborate with your peers across the Service.
  • Fresh Perspectives - Insight from Future Leaders: This unique and modern approach to mentoring empowers emerging leaders to share their insight and point of view with senior leaders.
  • Welcome Aboard: A civilian sponsorship program designed to help new civilians seamlessly transition into the Coast Guard in their first 90 days.

Engaging & Collaborating

Once you've enrolled, now it's time so start engaging with others.

  • When you join a Communities Marketplace group, introduce yourself to the group and share why you joined. Welcome others when they join. Check-in regularly to see what's new, participate in discussions, share resources and collaborate with others.
