Volunteer to help others, become a Resilience Trainer Assistant

Resilience Trainer Assistants are currently needed to complement the newly-certified and trained Edwards AFB Master Resilience Trainers.

Volunteer RTAs will assist the MRTs by being the “go-to” person in their specific organizations and will be advisers to their commanders on all aspects of resiliency.

Resilient employees equal a healthy resilient community which results in a ready force.

Edwards MRTs are 1st Lt. Whitney Mithun, 2nd Lt. Christopher Talbot and Tech. Sgt. Justin Clark. They are here to provide training as installation experts for the Comprehensive Airman Fitness program. MRTs will provide awareness, education and skill development techniques for Airmen and their families to enhance individual resilience across the four pillars of CAF – mental, physical, social and spiritual.

Edwards MRTs demonstrate a high degree of personal resilience and have the ability to openly discuss personal real-life experiences.

Pillars of resiliency

  • Mental Pillar: The ability to effectively cope with unique mental stressors and challenges necessary to ensure mission readiness.
  • Physical Pillar: The ability to adopt and sustain healthy behaviors needed to enhance health and wellbeing.
  • Social Pillar: The ability to engage in healthy social networks that promote overall well-being and optimal performance.
  • Spiritual Pillar: The ability to sustain an individual’s sense of well-being and purpose through a set of beliefs, principles or values.

If interested in becoming a Resilience Trainer Assistant please contact Nancy Koch-Castillo, 412th Test Wing Community Support coordinator at (661) 277-6711.
