AFMC kicks off mentoring awareness campaign

Mentoring not only helps Airmen discover their strengths, but also makes strides toward achieving their full potential through a structured, trusting mentoring relationship.

Through the telling of first-person experiences, we share the impact of mentoring -- on both mentors and mentees. Here you will find a series of written viewpoints and video interviews from Airmen around the command representative of different stages of Air Force careers. Both senior leaders and junior members of the command's workforce share why mentoring is so valuable.

Command highlights mentorship in 2018

What is one thing that Steve Jobs, Benjamin E. Mays, Maya Angelou and Luther Powell all have in common? All of them were mentors to individuals who accomplished great things in the world. Mr. Jobs mentored Mark Zuckerberg, Mr. Mays mentored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ms. Angelou mentored Oprah Winfrey and Mr. Powell mentored his son, retired Gen. Colin Powell.

AFMC is highlighting the importance of mentorship by releasing a series of articles and videos from individuals around the command -- individuals whose lives have been impacted by mentoring.
