|By Beth E. Musselman
WASHINGTON (Army News Service, Aug. 3, 2005) – The new Army Mentorship Community and Army Mentorship Resource Center web sites are now operational and available to those with Army Knowledge Online access.
As part of the new mentorship philosophy, “Leaving a Legacy Through Mentorship,” the sites are designed to help bring mentors and mentees together.
All Active Component Soldiers, Reserve Component Soldiers, Department of Army Civilians, Spouses, Retirees, Veterans, and Contractors, who are authorized AKO access, are encouraged to participate in the program.
“Mentorship is not a new concept and has been a part of Army culture for years,” said John McLaurin, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Human Resources. “It is an extremely powerful tool for personal and professional development; it improves competence, leadership skills, self-awareness, morale, and retention.”
Within the Army Mentorship Community, there are multiple tailored mentorship forums. Each forum offers the opportunity for open dialogue between voluntary mentors and those seeking advice, guidance, and mentorship. In these forums, open discussions are highly encouraged in order to help others develop and grow personally and professionally.
The Army Mentorship Resource Center offers valuable information for both mentors and mentees including related articles, a mentorship handbook, a sample Individual Development Action Plan, and a searchable mentorship profile server for mentors.
You can visit the Army Mentorship Resource Center at mentorship.army.mil; from this site you can also log on to the AKO Army Mentorship Community.
