Got Your 6 mentors help new students to succeed during their first or second semester at SCC.
The GY6 Mentor Program is sponsored by the Sacramento City College Veteran Resource Center.
Got Your Six is a vet-to-vet mentoring program. In the military, “Got your six” means “I’ve got your back.” The saying originated with World War I fighter pilots referencing a pilot’s backside as being the six o’clock position. It is now a ubiquitous term in the military that highlights the loyalty and cooperation found in military culture. At Sacramento City College we want to carry on this commitment of helping veterans by providing a support system that allows veteran students to move forward in accomplishing their personal and academic goals.
A Vet-to-Vet mentoring program is key to helping new veteran students overcome challenges, such as meeting academic expectations, establishing a balance between academic and personal responsibilities, relating to nonveteran students, and coping with service-related injuries.
- Provide a vet-to-vet support system to ease the transition from service to school
- Strengthen student veteran networks on campus
