The NAVFAC Mentoring Program is focused on an approach to advising and nurturing that creates a practical Mentoring relationship, between a Mentor and a Mentee, to enhance both the Mentee’s personal and professional development. It provides guidance that contributes to the development of a junior employee’s knowledge, values, practices. Mentors have the potential to assist Mentees in discovering their strengths and weaknesses, formulate a career path, set goals, manage stress, and balance work and personal obligations.
The purpose of the NAVFAC Mentoring Program is to:
Provide a mechanism for formal Mentoring where Mentors and Mentees volunteer to establish Mentoring relationships with the intent of fostering professional development of specific skills and competencies
Provide learning and development opportunities, resources, and support for Mentors and Mentees to be successful in achieving their goals.
Ensure the smooth and seamless mentee transitions into more senior positions by imparting institutional knowledge.
