As part of ANSO’s strategic plan, we have launched a fundraising program to advance our mission through improved regional symposiums, the ANSO/CTR Factor Non-Profit Alliance Joint Leadership Institute, and the advancement of grass-root community outreach initiatives.
Each one of our five pillars is essential to our mission success, but community outreach can arguably be considered the most meaningful. Through our community initiatives, we (each ANSO member) share our experiences, educate both parents and young men and women on the opportunities available in the military, and mentor those who aspire to become the future leaders of our sea services.
Since 1981, ANSO has shaped the path of some of our highest ranking leaders serving today, and those leaders continue to be part of ANSO, but there is still much work to be done. ANSO members must navigate key assignments and professional development milestones to achieve personal and professional goals, and successfully compete for promotions and opportunities. The ANSO network can play a vital role in guiding those career decisions.
So, be a part of a future sea service leader’s journey and donate TODAY!
Please share the fundraising program with your personal and professional networks.
You can donate through our fundraising page or text “donate” to 202-831-9777.
Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. You will receive your tax receipt via email once the donation is processed.
Thank you for your continued support, and adelante con ANSO!!
Are you interested in providing mentorship and professional development to students interested in a career as an Officer?
ANSO San Diego Chapter’s LT Jonathan Daniel has created a virtual mentorship program for Hispanic and Latin students in high school, college, as well as recent graduates to be connected with ANSO members. The objective of this mentorship program is to provide students with information, pathways, and personal insight into pursuing a career as a USN/USCG Officer.
As of 2022, the ethnic Hispanic makeup of Navy Enlisted closely mirrors the national population; however, there is a stark decrease in Hispanic Officer representation that is non-proportional with the national population. We want to close that gap and increase inclusivity and a sense of belonging in order to focus on warfighting. Creating a Navy and Coast Guard with a proportional and diverse leadership corps leads to innovation and organizational creativity.
If you are interested in signing up as a mentor, please use the following link:
If you are a student, recent graduate, or know someone who would be interested in receiving a mentor, please direct to the following link:

My name is LT Ximena Johnson and over the summer I had the opportunity to participate in the 2020 Academy Introduction Mission (AIM) as an Active Duty Partner, to provide information to high school students who expressed interest in applying to the Coast Guard Academy. My job was to provide a realistic view of the organization, the CGA, and my experience as a Hispanic female in the Coast Guard.
In each AIM week, there were approximately 65 students, divided into platoons led by a Cadre of Cadets. While attending AIM, students were able to learn about the Coast Guard and the Coast Guard Academy. Normally the students would be at the Academy for one week to explore the campus and learn on-site about Academy life. However, because of the safety risks posed by COVID-19, the Coast Guard Academy Admissions Department developed a comprehensive and meticulous plan in which multiple virtual meetings were conducted via Microsoft Teams. Additionally, the AIM Cadre developed a series of high quality videos, designed to provide the students with fitness instructions, educational information about USCG history, missions, and life as a CGA cadet. I think the AIM Cadre and CGA Admissions successfully delivered useful information to the students, giving them the opportunity to learn about life in the Coast Guard, its missions, and the educational opportunities available at the CG Academy.
The San Diego Chapter is soliciting for Coast Guard Active Duty Officers, Coast Guard Academy Alumni, and Retirees who wish to mentor prospective and current Coast Guard Academy cadets as part of the Academy Minority Outreach Team (AMOT). In coordination with Academy Admissions, mentors conduct outreach to prospective candidates, encourage completion of their applications, and offer support on acceptance to the Academy. Moreover, volunteers forge relationships with cadets as they transition into the Officer Corps.
