Recruiter Assistance Programs

Navy Recruiting Command

 

 

Navy Recruiting Command uses volunteers from the Officer/Enlisted community to participate in three worthwhile Recruiting Assistance programs. These programs are excellent ways to return Sailors home to tell friends, family, educators etc. about the benefits of a naval career, share their experiences and achievements and enhance the Navy image in the community.

The Navy benefits by having an additional recruiting asset to relay the navy experience to centers of influence.  Public speaking and local media exposures are often arranged for the volunteers.
