The US Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a non-profit, volunteer organization that relies heavily on parents to support the efforts of volunteer officers and instructors working with their children. With this in mind, parents should:

  • Encourage their child to be respectful of officers and adult volunteers.
  • Praise their child for his or her accomplishments.
  • Remind their child to listen to and obey instructions.
  • Be punctual in dropping off and picking up their child from USNSCC functions.

All of our volunteers must undergo a background check before becoming a member of our officer corps, and cadets are under adult supervision during training events. Safety briefings are also included in our training curriculum.

We strongly believe in the positive impact that our program has on our nation, our sea services and our youth. It is important to us that we are accessible to anyone who wants to join us regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic or geographic background or physical disability. We are ADA-compliant.

Promoting a culture of inclusion across our diverse cadet corps is something we take very seriously, and we have a zero tolerance policy for hazing and bullying.

Parents who are interested in volunteering with unit activities and responsibilities are encouraged to contact the Commanding Officer.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator border_width=”3″ css=”.vc_custom_1531323556322{margin-top: 20px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”5145″ img_size=”250×300″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vcex_heading text=”Sponsor” css=”.vc_custom_1531323649838{margin-bottom: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_text font_size=”14″]On a national level, the USNSCC programs are sponsored by the Navy League of the United States and supported by both the US Navy and Coast Guard.
