Mentoring is a proven avenue for professional development. We are now signing up mentors and enrolling mentees in our new Maritime Industry Mentoring Program.

Using a simple online platform, we connect people who are looking for a mentor with experienced professionals who want to offer guidance to people with emerging careers in the marine sciences.

Mentees have the opportunity to further their professional development and receive technical and managerial guidance while making valuable contacts within the marine industry.

Mentors can give back and hone their skills in coaching and counseling.


  • You must be an MTS member in good standing.
  • All participants in the must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Mentors must have worked in the maritime industry for at least 10 years.
  • By participating, you agree to the Terms of Use.
