The purpose of this quantitative, correlational research study was to determine the existence or nonexistence of a relationship between mentor and protégé training and achievement. The Twelfth Air Force respondents were asked to complete a survey questionnaire created for the study. Although an Air Force mentoring regulation exists, results indicate the respondents believe that mentoring practices are reactive and non-standardized. Findings suggest the Air Force uses five formal mentoring methods; yet, half the survey respondents indicated they had not received the training. The findings support informal mentoring programs. The findings support the federal government-mentoring climate has changed since 2002. The ongoing cultural change might provide the 21st-century organizations a new direction.
