(January 15, 2014)
Dear Students and Parents,
The application process for the 2014 Summer Leadership and Character Development Program (SLCDA) is now open. Please fill out this app and save it as a word Doc with your name in it,(i.e. slcdabell.doc). Any other paper work can be scanned and sent as a PDF (you can download a scan app for your iphone that works great) I suggest that you sent it in one email. Last year the app was a PDF and you had to hand fill it out, this year you can type it and save as a Doc which makes the app a smaller file all together. When you are complete with the application, email it to SLCDA@marines.usmc.mil
I have to warn you that I am the only one with access to that account right now and will be checking it on a regular basis starting this week. Right now for example, I'm in Lima Peru and I can't access the Gov't accounts from here. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org this is the email address I used from last year and already have it set up to my phone for ease of communications. Because I'm a pilot with American Airlines, I'm out of country 16 days out of the month but I'm always able to check my gmail account. That is also the reason I have my staff sign up for Gmail accounts since they are all reservist with limit access to a Marines.mil mail account. So, once again, any apps or sensitive information needs to be sent to the email@example.com account and any general questions can be directed to bellslcda13@gmail.
Our app window will close at 0800 on 15 March. Then we will hold a board to pick out applicants for this year's program, July 20th to the 26th. Please don't wait until the last minute to submit your application...First is best.
With that, I'll continue to post updates on our SLCDA Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MarinesSLCDA.
I encourage you to like our page and stand by for numerous updates there...
The Summer Leadership and Character Development Academy is a week-long program that provides our nation’s top-performing high school students an opportunity to receive leadership training, character development, lessons on ethics and college admissions guidance from experienced Marine officers.
