Mentor Program

Kentucky Wing Mentor Program

The purpose of the Kentucky Wing Mentoring Program is to provide mentors to Auxiliary Airmen across the wing who may not have access to a mentor in their chosen field at the squadron or group level.

Why a Mentor?

  • To complete Level 3, an adult member must mentor a new member through Level 1; this should be accomplished at the squadron level
  • To complete Level 5, an adult member must mentor a member through the Technician rating in a Specialty Track
  • To earn Level II, a member must have achieved a Technician Rating
  • To earn Level III – the Loening Award – achieve a Senior Rating
  • To earn Level IV – the Garber Award – achieve a Master Rating

Mentors are experienced and trusted advisors who provide guidance, support and advice directly relevant to your chosen role. A Mentor will help you feel more confident in your selected specialty track, giving you a stronger sense of purpose within the organization.
