Army ROTC is designed to help new Cadets succeed. A core tool to this concept is the Mentorship Program. Each semester Cadets are organized into mentor groups and sign a commitment to help each other. The mentor program includes academic counseling as well as Army ROTC education and support. Once Cadets progress past their freshman year, they receive mentees of their own and continue the service. Cadets are mentored by more senior Cadets throughout their Army ROTC career.
