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.

January is National Mentoring Month, and 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.

Mentoring offers the chance to create a culture of continuous learning, promote personal and professional growth, and the opportunity to help shape the future of the Air Force.

AFMC will showcase the importance of mentoring via this webpage that includes written viewpoints, videos, and references about mentoring. All these resources and more are located online at the AFMC Mentoring page. Check back often, as insightful content about mentoring will appear here over time.

Everyone has a story to share, and mentoring is the perfect venue to share your story. It’s a story that may help change AFMC, the Air Force and the world!
