EPIC's Remote Mentorship Assistance Program (ReMap)

Solving the need for Delayed Entry Enlistee connection to our service. 

ReMap Mission
To assist the U.S Coast Guard in increasing diversity and modeling inclusion in our service. In an effort to better replicate the population of the country we serve.  Providing early mentoring to our delayed entry enlistees accompanied with a strong sense of community.  Assisting our national recruiting offices with under-represented minority and women recruitment by assigning dedicated and skillful mentors. 

EPIC's ReMap Goals

1. Increasing recruitment, retention and mentorship of females and underrepresented minorities in Delayed Entry Program.

2. Creating a fully integrated mentorship program that creates an inclusive community by providing early connection to professionals in our service.

3. Ensuring ALL Delayed Entry enlistees have a positive experience in their recruiting process.

We created EPIC because many minorities we knew within our service needed mentoring and connection to avoid negative experiences within their career. We decided to create a network where those experiences could be transformed into positive teaching tools for our next generation.

I helped create EPIC with a focus on building healthy networking relationships, that fostered inclusion and retention. By achieving this mission the Coast Guard keeps the brightest and best in our service.

What is the Delayed Entry Program?

When an applicant chooses to enlist on active duty, they enter a Delayed Entry Program (DEP) at least 14 days before their ship date to basic training. While in DEP recruiting offices conduct care taking where they prepare the applicant mentally, physically, and culturally for their service in the Coast Guard. EPICs goal is to ensure Coast Guard DEP enlistees are connected to a community of experienced professionals to assist with their transition in to the Coast Guard. By creating a sense of inclusion and community for our DEP enlistees we are better preparing them for successful integration into their new career.
