Abstract:

A series of studies was conducted relating off-duty educational programs to recruiting, performance, and retention. The relationships are all high and positive in studies involving the opinions of recruits, current and past NCFA program participants, Navy operational commands, Navy recruiters, and Navy wives. When participants are compared to a matched group same rate, rating, years in service, age, etc. of nonparticipants, there is evidence that they are promoted more frequently, but are less likely to stay in the Navy. No relationships were found with rated performance, disciplinary records, or commendations. Author
