California Cadet Corps


The Cadet Youth Foundation (CYF) is an associated non-profit organization that provides cadets with financial assistance for summer camp and purchases items that can not be obtained with state funds.  The CYF relies on donations and memberships to do this, there are life time memberships avaliable for a one time donation of $1000,  there are currently six life time members.  As Summer Camp approaches the CYF is seeking donations and members to help fund this experience.

The MISSION of the California Cadet Corps (CACC) is to provide California schools and students with a quality educational and leadership development program that prepares students for success in college and the work force.

The mission is accomplished through the six core OBJECTIVES of the California Cadet Corps:

To develop Leadership.
To engender Citizenship.
To encourage Patriotism.

And those objectives are supported by the GOALS of the California Cadet Corps:

Loyalty - To self, others, and civic and government institutions.
Education - The success of all cadets in academic endeavors, including staying in school and pursuing higher education.
Ambition - Striving for excellence and lofty goals.
Duty - Lifelong habits of responsible behavior, excellent attendance, and punctuality.
Enthusiasm - A zest for life's challenges.
Respect - cooperation with school and public policies, regulations, and laws and respect for the dignity of all persons as well as an appreciation for the rich heritage of America and California.
Service - To others, our state, our nation, and world.
Health - Fitness and wellness, including avoidance of gangs, illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.
Integrity - Positive choices by cadets with regards to private and public behavior.
Personal courage - Say no to that which is wrong and stand up for what is right.
