Participating in the mentorship program as a mentor and protégé encourages Sailors to help and learn from one another and to push each other to reach their full potential. Many Sailors are given the opportunity to choose whom they want as a mentor. Mentors help mentees plan out obstacles and goals they may come across and help them understand how to overcome difficulties and identify expectations their leadership may have for them. To become a mentor or have someone be your mentor there is a contract signed between the two Sailors that show in writing the Sailors' goals they want to obtain or complete.
