The mentorship program is run by Capt. Luckie Howlett. This is an amazing program that I took part in when I was a recruit. Captain Luckie assigns an official mentor who will help you to get acclimated and work with you past graduation – an SLCG new friend. I chose to have a couple of mentors and I really would never have gotten through it without my two mentors. Sometimes you need someone that is in your corner and can help with some of the frustration we often see at the beginning of joining a new group and in our case beginning recruitment. I found the mentorship program to be wonderful for myself i think you will agree.
Mentorship is NOT a substitution for your official training at RTC. Your mentor will be with you to help if you have questions, if you need support in any way, if you need a new friend as you get acclimated to the SLCG.
1. Your mentor will go on a patrol or more with you to help answer questions and just have some fun with you. They are not there to test you but to support you.
2. Your mentor can help you sort out your uniforms.
3. Your mentor can help you with skills like navigation and patrol reports.
4. Your Mentor can help you to sort through policies that might affect you in your day-to-day.
5. If you wonder “Why something is done the way it is in SLCG?” ask your mentor for insight.
If you have any questions about being a mentor or anything about the mentorship program please feel free to send a notecard to Captain Luckie Howlett.
