Those who serve on DynCorp International’s Training and Mentoring programs, often say that the individual contributions they are able to make while serving on mission are the most significant part of the job.
DynCorp International employees in the Training and Mentoring program not only take pride in serving as advisors, trainers and mentors to local and national forces all over the world but also in the small day-to-day efforts that support overall mission goals.
The people of DynCorp International embrace our core values – we serve, we care, we empower, we perform and we do the right thing. While in the field, DI employees exemplify these core values through their individual contributions in the community.
“One of the most rewarding parts of working overseas is working with the community; not just the place, the entire community,” said Matt Wilber, an international police officer working with DynCorp International.
“In one mission, a school was totally falling apart – no roof, no windows, no furniture. So, I got donations from my family, and I kicked in money and we had the school totally rebuilt. It was one of the nicest schools in the country after that,” said Wilber, of his experience in Afghanistan.
Individual Contributions in Sudan
Chad Guinther, another international police officer with DynCorp International, describes his experience in Sudan.
“Everybody that was actually in Sudan with me at the time working with DynCorp, always had their pet projects,” said Guinther.
“Some people took it upon themselves to buy biscuits and hand them out to the kids that were always running around. We always donated gear and whatever we brought back from vacation and sent them to orphanages. When you see, when we go to the orphanage and just give them ten soccer balls, you can’t describe what that’s like,” said Guinther.
