Values Based Curriculum:
The Airmen’s Week approach utilizes “affective learning” methods which require Airmen
to not only respond to and engage with material presented, but also make a value judgment on it.
It allows Airmen to personalize the Core Values, giving them a greater understanding of the Airmen’s
Creed and helping them understand their role in the Air Force mission. By setting expectations for Airmen
as members of the Air Force and Profession of Arms, we’re able to build a sense of purpose, belonging, and
identity which shapes their behavior and choices in the face of moral and ethical dilemmas. Our 31 hours of
contractor-developed curriculum consist of 5 hours of large group instruction and 26 hours of small group
(16 Airmen) facilitation.
Military Training Instructor Facilitators provide foundational mentorship to Airmen in the role of
a traditional Non-Commissioned Officer. Their approach toward Airmen is as a coach, mentor, and
supervisor tasked to inspire commitment to the Air Force Core Values.
The mission is executed by a team consisting of the Profession of Arms Center of Excellence (PACE)
as the program manager, B3H as the curriculum developer, 20 civilian facilitators, and 60
Military Training Instructors (MTIs) who are hand-selected and trained in facilitation techniques.
Opportunities to build teamwork and wingmanship are also provided. Through local community
involvement, Airmen are encouraged to volunteer, allowing them another way to internalize the
value of service to others.
