We are excited to share information about the U.S. Coast Guard's Summer Academy Introduction MIssion (AIM) program. There are two town hall information sessions being held to learn more about it: tonight, 07 APR and next week, 12 APR. See message below to register for those information sessions.
Please note the deadline to apply is 15 APR. **IMPORTANT** information: AIM is a two-part application process, step one - cadets need to apply directly with the USCGA using the link in the announcement below, and step two - cadets also need to apply internally with USNSCC using this link, https://usnavalseacadet.formstack.com/forms/uscg_aim_application . If cadets have already been accepted into the AIM program for 2022, they still need to register in Magellan for the corresponding trainings, which can be found in the Parent Portal (for parents), on Homeport (for cadets), or in Magellan (for volunteers).
