Civil Air Patrol Volunteer Now



“National Activities are a definite draw to the Cadet Program. When talking to cadets, they will often remain in CAP longer if they have a goal or vision. Being able to tell of great experiences that I and others have shared helps cadets formulate a vision and they devote more to the development and success of the squadron.” -- 2012 IACE Cadet Applicant


The main goal of the Cadet Team is enhancing the success of local units.  Since most of the work is done at this level we provide tools and programs to help them grow; from recruiting new members to orientation flights, fundraising to mentoring.
