"The National Guard's essential role of strategic reserve and bulwark of Homeland Security requires leadership ready and able to lead this multi-faceted organization in complex and dynamic times. Mentoring is a potent personal and professional development technique that is considered by many to be a key component in developing strategic leaders, civilian and military. Because of the unique aspects of being state militias made up of citizen-soldiers, the Army National Guard (ARNG) would benefit greatly from a mentorship program that adopts components of both civilianbusiness and active military mentorship models. This paper will present an academic review of mentorship theory and research, civilian-business models, and existing military programs -- especially the Army Mentoring Program to evaluate the components that would be most appropriate and beneficial to the ARNG for development of its strategic leaders for the 21st century."
