The Coast Guard’s PIE program emphasizes four strategies for effectiveness:
To date, civilian and military employees of the Coast Guard have donated over 432,063 volunteer hours to the PIE program.
At Air Station Cape Cod, volunteers regularly participate in an after school homework club at Otis Elementary School. These volunteers are comprised of active duty members from local Coast Guard and Air Force units, as well as military dependents and base civilian employees. Throughout the year, more than 200 volunteer hours are donated to build student performance in math, reading, and science and to help prepare them for end of year testing.
