Youth Development Mentors - US Air Force Auxiliary, New Hampshire Wing, Civil Air Patrol (NH075)
The squadrons of New Hampshire Wing, Civil Air Patrol are seeking mentors interested in youth development as part of our cadet program donate their time and expertise and a part of the all-volunteer Auxiliary of the United States Air Force.
The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Cadet Program transforms youth into dynamic Americans and aerospace leaders. CAP accomplishes this through a curriculum of leadership, aerospace, fitness and character. The program follows a military model and emphasizes Air Force traditions and values. Today’s cadets are tomorrow’s aerospace leaders.
Our cadet program officers manage the highly structured, nationally mandated training and leadership curriculum at each of our local squadrons. Cadet program officers serve as mentors, program managers and adult leaders. While no military experience is required to assist in the management of the cadet program, in some areas (ie. uniform wear, cadet drill & ceremonies) it is helpful.
If you’re up for the task, CAP offers ordinary citizens unique training and service opportunities in your local community.
The Mt Washington Flight meets the 2nd & 4th Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. at the American Legion Post 41 (44 Littleton Rd, Whitefield).
- A sincere interest in mentoring young people in areas of leadership, aerospace, physical fitness and character development.
- Previous military leadership experience is helpful, but not required.
- Great people & communication skills;
- Aged 18 or older;
- Ability to pass a background check;
