The USGS Mentoring Program is a tool that provides cost-effective training and development to all participants, encouraging professional and personal growth. It is an effective form of training with a personal side that provides unique benefits to both mentoring partners.
The USGS Mentoring program gives participants the gift of growing, supporting informed risk-taking so that participants can reach their potential and often exceed their expectations. Participants not only build skills, but confidence and leadership as well. They leave this program prepared for the opportunity to lead well, manage wisely, and keep the USGS on the forefront of excellent science.
