Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

Mentor Match, a FREE benefit of ANS membership, utilizes an online database and a Mentoring Discussion Group with information archives to help members find, connect, and share insight with other members. Enjoy the professional development benefits of mentoring no matter your location. Your Mentor or Mentee may be in your city or on the other side of the world! Matched parties may choose one or more methods of communication that work best for them: email, phone call, video chat, meetings, etc.
ANS Mentors may be CNOs, Presidents, Mangers, professors, retirees, and others, hailing from companies like Argonne, Bechtel Marine Propulsion, Idaho National Laboratory, Y12 National Security Complex, and universities just to name a few. ANS Mentees may be students, recent graduates, or working professionals seeking guidance at any career stage.
According to ANS Mentor Dr. Larry Foulke, past ANS President, "I think being a mentor is important because we must nurture the next generation of our profession. These young people are needed; I want them to know that. Plus, I enjoy celebrating with them the excitement I have for the remarkable technology we share."
Getting involved in mentoring can enrich your career, broaden your network, and result in lifelong associations.
