Stoll member of mentorship coalition

MANISTIQUE – Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Nathan R. Stoll and fellow sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65) formed a Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions committee.

CSADD is a peer-to-peer mentoring program geared toward assisting sailors in making positive decisions in all areas of their lives.

The program was originally created for those in ROTC, JROTC and similar programs. However, it quickly spread throughout the Navy and is now a resource for all sailors.

The purpose of the program is peer mentorship. The goals of its members are to get a group of sailors who, through networking and discussion, can create ways to inform and inspire others to make better decisions, and to equip all hands with the tools they need to make those decisions.

The coalition has different topics they want to focus on every month in an effort to raise awareness about these issues. Topics range from addressing problems such as sexual assault to everyday issues such as car buying.

CSADD recently held its first meeting and plan to meet at least once per month throughout the rest of the ship’s deployment.

Stoll joined the Navy in December 2009. He is the son of Janet Stoll and Gregg Stoll, both of Manistique, Mich.
