Elangomats (ee-lang-oh-matts) are responsible for guiding Ordeal Candidates through their Ordeal experience. This can be a very rewarding experience, since you get to act as a mentor to a small clan of candidates. Elangomats will be responsible for directing their clan of Ordeal Candidates through each step of the Ordeal experience, and will wear a neon safety vest so the Ordeal candidates can locate them easily.
The main responsibilities of the Elangomat can be summed up:
- Individual attention – Pre-Ordeal identification and continuous monitoring.
- Safety – Knows where each individual is located throughout the Ordeal.
- Inspirational atmosphere – Sets Positive, conscientious example throughout Ordeal by following the Four Tests alongside the candidates.
- Strong Friendship for life – Experience sharing bonds friends. Maintain contact with clan after the Ordeal is over.
- Facilitates attainment of Brotherhood – Mentors during post-Ordeal period, and provides information about the Order. This leading and coaxing also tends to increase membership retention
