This program definitely placed me on the path of success.
"Although I am unable to talk on behalf of other people, I can assure you that my participation in this program definitely placed me on the path of success in my career and for the rest of my life: the priceless words of increase self-confidence; reinforced determination; and maintenance of career focus are tools that I acquired through my two years with my mentor, and I can assure you that there is a huge difference between where I stand today, professionally, compared to how I approached the world of work, before I started the program."

Mentoring Volunteers Fill Gap at the U.S. Department of State:
When the Office of Major Events and Conferences Staff (M/MECS) needed volunteers quickly, they knew where to turn. They contacted the Civil Service Mentoring Program, which quickly spread the word to its 900+ members, looking for volunteers to assist with the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue. Within 24 hours, more than two dozen volunteers had stepped in to fill the gap, providing 30% of the total volunteers. The Director of M/MECS stated, "I was so impressed with the overwhelming response. Volunteers are vital to State's conference planning, and the Mentoring Program really came through for us."
