Education and training promotes personal growth, skills development and social and community engagement.
Various classes, workshops, training sessions and special events are held throughout the year based on information received from the Colorado Springs CAF community. The planned activities are meant to complement (rather than duplicate) the work of existing USAFA and Peterson AFB supports and activities. Whenever possible, linkages are formed with these other agencies to meet the needs of the community.
The MFSP and the MFS relies heavily on volunteers to help plan, coordinate, and facilitate these activities. You are encouraged to contact your Centre, if you are interested in volunteering, or if you have a suggestion for a workshop or class that you believe others would also be interested in.
Adult professional development services include a variety of programs. These programs are offered during the day and or evening. The programs are advertised in the MFS Colorado Springs Newsletter and through the USAFA and Peterson AFB website. Programs may include:
MFS Resource Library
