My son has been a part of the program for 7 years. In that time he has developed a healthy sense of responsibility, citizenship, leadership and character. He has grown into a man that knows no limits to what he can accomplish. There are several things I as a parent, love about this program. The experiences he has had are beyond belief. Everything from volunteering in the community to cruising on a front line aircraft carrier in the Pacific to training with some of the military's finest special operations personnel on an active military base and the list goes on. In addition he has been exposed to other young adults with very high aspirations as well as a group of great adult volunteers that serve as mentors constantly guiding, pushing and motivating him. All in all I can't imagine a better youth program to get your child a head start in life.
Have been involved since my daughter joined in 1983. This program keeps me young, and makes me feel like I am doing something useful for the community and the nation.
My family has been involved with USNSCC and USNLCC for three years. It has been enormously positive. I am overwhelmed by the commitment of the volunteers who make this their passion. My children have benefited immensely from the program.
The United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a great program for youth aging from 11-17. Military training for a little over $100 a year, couldn't ask for a better deal
My son has been attending with enterprise division in Miami FL for 2yrs and he has learned so much and has had so many experiences he already knows what he wants for his future he loves it.
The united states naval sea cadets has help me change my life around and find my life goals that I want and will with the help of the USNSCC
If you have time to watch their video, you will get to see what my son has been doing, and will get to do someday in this program. It's amazing how this Sea Cadet turned my son into a great individual! My shy and introverted son has finally came out of his shell. He learned how to make a right decision, becoming a responsible person and he is now becoming more independent. Still making sure that his academic grades is the top priority. But then, seeing him enjoying time in Sea Cadet is priceless! Getting into Color Guard is the greatest experience for him. Thanks you Naval Sea Cadet. I'm a proud parent of this awesome kid!
I worked with the Sea Cadets for 3 years, as Administration Officer. The volunteer work of keeping track of all papers for each cadet was a challenge, but working with the cadets was fun. Teaching them the responsibility of paper work being completed properly and neatly was interesting. The cadets were always willing to do what they were told to do. This is the best offer for children to learn responsibility and pride.
USNSCC/USNLCC is an amazing youth program. I have two sons in the program who started out as Leaguers. I have seen them grow in confidence and self reliance. It has helped shape their characters with a sense of purpose, commitment, honor and integrity. The training opportunities that are offered are incredible. I am also serving in the unit as an auxiliary instructor and I have valued the opportunity to work with all of these young people and amazing adults. It's an amazing program all around!
The USNSCC changed my life. My teenage years were filled with purpose and personal growth as a result of this program. I met and worked with incredible mentors who helped me to aspire to a career in nursing and to a fulfilling life as an adult. When I have kids, I truly hope they will participate in the USNSCC. It is truly one of a kind!
