The Commander, Naval Service Training Command (NSTC) desires to increase cadet safety awareness through the institution of Suicide Prevention, Bystander Intervention, and Hazing/Bullying Prevention programs within the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) and Navy National Defense Cadet Corps (NNDCC) programs. All NJROTC/NNDCC units were directed to establish such a program beginning in school year 2014-15.
Senior Naval Science Instructors (SNSI) were directed, with the approval of and in coordination with host school officials, to implement, support, and operate Suicide Prevention, Bystander Intervention, and Hazing Prevention programs within their individual NJROTC/NNDCC units. It was further directed that senior cadet leadership be actively involved in leading these programs. The Suicide Prevention, Bystander Intervention, and Hazing Prevention programs are designated Area Manager Inspection (AMI) special interest items.
These three cadet staff action officers may have designated assistants. If you are a junior cadet in our Company, and are interested in learning about and helping in one or more of these three important areas, please contact one of the NJROTC instructors for more information.
Our Unit has designated three senior cadets with monitoring and reporting responsibility within these three areas. The three areas have been delegated as follows:
1. Suicide Prevention: C/LT Julia Heredia
2. Hazing/Bullying Prevention: C/PO1 Andres Ruiz and C/SCPO Sarah Bosheers
3. Bystander Intervention : C/PO2 Rhiana Gould
