SUBJ: VOLUNTEER SOLITICIATION FOR U.S. COAST GUARD ACADEMY
ADMISSIONS PARTNER (AAP) AND ACADEMY MINORITY OUTREACH TEAM
(AMOT) PROGRAM
1. The AAP program is a volunteer network dedicated to supporting
the recruiting and outreach mission of the United States Coast
Guard Academy Admissions office. Since 2006 Academy
Admissions Partners have worked alongside Admissions staff to
educate, recruit and assist the future cadets and officers of the
United States Coast Guard. Our volunteer organization consists of
1,185 members, made up of Active Duty and Reserve members, CGA
Alumni, AMOT, parents of cadets and graduates, USCG Auxiliary, and
friends of the Academy. Volunteer today and give back to America’s
premier maritime Academy by identifying our next generation of
leaders.
2. AMOT is a segment of the AAP program that is comprised of 114
dedicated minority officers and retirees, many of whom graduated
from the Coast Guard Academy. This dedicated group of volunteers
includes African Americans, Asian, and Hispanic officers and
civilians focused on enhancing recruitment efforts and retention
programs for the Academy. Over the last several years, the role
of AMOT has become more influential across every Academy Division
and has expanded beyond recruitment and Admissions outreach support.
Most recently, efforts have crossed into mentoring and retention
efforts at the Academy and in support of the Coast Guard Academy
Scholars (CGAS) program. This renewed direction has held a
significant lasting impact on the overall goal of improving the
cultural competency of the Academy and the Coast Guard. In this
expansion of efforts, in addition to enhancing the recruitment
reach, purposeful and lasting mentoring relationships have been
created with the presence of AMOT volunteers to support retention
of under-represented minority officers at the Academy and in the
fleet after graduation.
3. Normally, AAP and AMOT participants will outreach with local
schools, participate in college fairs, the Academy Introduction
Mission, CGC EAGLE events, USCGA workshops, USCGA Campus Program
events, conduct applicant interviews and present appointments to
accepted students. Realities of COVID-19 have limited personal
interaction, but virtual options exist for Partners and AMOT to
contribute a minimum of two to four hours of volunteer service
each year.
4. Requirements to become an AAP and AMOT member are as
follows: interested Active Duty, Reserve or civilian participants
must pass a basic background investigation or be in good military
standing as an Active Duty and Reserve member. Prospective Partners
must complete the required training and pass an indoctrination test
with an 85 percent or higher. AMOT members will have the option to
take the indoctrination test or attend an annual training session
held by the CGA Admissions office.
5. Interested participants registering for the AAP or AMOT program
are asked to create a profile on the CGA website at:
