JLBC Character Development Instructor
• JLBC Cadet Unit Course: lead new cadets through this course and work with cadet NCOs who are leading it
• Character development forums: facilitating monthly conferences about character-related issues; ensuring the discussions stay on topic and follow lesson plans pre-approved by JLBC Command.
• Mentoring for Core Values behavior: constantly showing cadets how their actions relate to the Core Values and reinforcing/redirecting behavior as needed; ensuring the cadet Unit concept is a cultural norm in the squadron; providing Core Values are incorporated into all facets of cadet life.
• Drug-Free Messaging: help other CP Officers to incorporate drug-free messaging into all aspects of the cadet life, Character Day, etc.
• Community outreach activities: organizing or supervising cadet staff involved in programs like the JLBC Leadership Academy
• Support Chaplains: while CDIs do not provide confidential counseling, they help to expand the “Ministry” by being accessible to cadets as a supportive adult
Emphasis Item: JLBC and Medal of Honor activities are still recommended squadron activities, but only the Values for Living satisfies the monthly character forum requirement (and the Cadet Unit Course for Achievement).
