By the end of Week 3 of the Residential Phase, cadets begin the development of their Post-Residential Action Plan, or PRAP. This document will serve as the foundation of their goals – short, intermediate, transition, and long-term – that will be supported by Academy staff during the Residential Phase, and further supported by the mentor during the Post-Residential phase. The PRAP also identifies necessary resources for accomplishing the identified goals and potential obstacles the cadet may face in succeeding towards the goals.
The post-residential phase is dependent upon a strong mentoring relationship that provides consistent contact, encouragement, and support. The mentor serves as a listener, a guiding coach, a friendly reinforcement, and an ally through life’s experiences.
