The Concord Squadron of New Hampshire Wing, Civil Air Patrol is seeking youth mentors interested in donating their time and expertise to guide and train cadets as 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 CAP cadets are tomorrow’s aerospace leaders.
Cadet program officers serve as mentors, program managers, and adult leaders to CAP cadets ages 12-20. They manage the structured, nationally mandated training and leadership curriculum at the local squadron. 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 Concord Squadron meets each Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the NH Army National Guard Armory (1 Minuteman Way, Concord). Visit our unit website at https://concord.cap.gov/.
