Youth Military Cadet Programs

Code: PS-9800.9950

A program sponsored by the U.S. armed forces in high schools throughout the country whose objective is to teach participants the value of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, personal responsibility and a sense of accomplishment, while promoting self-esteem, teamwork, self-discipline, physical fitness and the importance of graduation. While military cadet programs teach young people basic military skills and serve as an introduction to possible military careers, cadets are not in the military, have no military status when they leave the program, and have no obligation to the military.
