How Mentoring Works

This synopsis was copied from the Naval Sea Systems Command mentoring page at


Mentoring is a personal enhancement strategy through which one person facilitates the development of another by sharing known resources, expertise, values, skills, perspectives, attitudes and proficiencies. It allows the learner to build skills and knowledge while attaining goals for career development. Conversely, it provides the opportunity for the experienced individual to further enhance his/her skills and knowledge areas by continuously reassessing and building upon those areas.

This web-based mentoring process guides the mentee through assessing his/her development needs, finding a suitable mentor from a dynamic database, and creating a mentoring agreement. It also supports the participants through utilities such as messaging and calendar functions, allowing for collaborative discussions and easy planning and scheduling.

To participate in the NAVSEA Mentoring Network Program, a mentee NAVSEA group code is required. If you do not have this 6-digit code, go to the “Help & Support” link to the left or contact the Command Mentoring Program Coordinator. Without this code, you will not be able to complete a mentoring application.  The 6 digit codes used at PSNS & IMF for mentees and mentors are:

Mentees - 920551

Mentors - 565168

The link below provides information on the new mentoring program supported by PSNS & IMF.
