The DOE Mentoring Programs provide enriching experiences through reciprocal relationships and opportunities while sharing knowledge, leveraging skills, and cultivating talent. They provide a series of developmental experiences for matched mentoring pairs and designated groups. The primary goal of the relationships is personal and professional development for individuals. Through the mentoring relationship, mentors have the opportunity to coach, guide and share experiences, knowledge, and skills, which will contribute to the Mentee’s development. Currently the STEM Mentoring Program and the Veterans Mentoring Program are communities of interest. All DOE programs will have matching of pairs, orientation, training for mentees and mentors, mentor agreements, mentor action plans, developmental activities, two evaluations and annual recognition of pairs.
