Get in Touch, Start a Club

Contact the Cadet office and talk to someone on staff. They will send you an “info packet” and talk to you about what club start-up resources are available to you. It may be possible for you to get a first-hand look at a club. The staff can tell you if there is another club in your area that you can visit or find an experienced counselor in your area who can visit you.

The Steps to Starting

What needs to happen for you to start a club? The steps below will give you an overview of the process. When you contact the Cadet corps (Step 3) and receive the info packet you will receive the Starting and Organizing a Cadet Club booklet which will give you a more detailed description of how to set up and run your club.

  • STEP 1

    Read/Agree with our Constitution

  • STEP 2

    Review your program choices

Once submitted, your club will be examined/approved by our executive committee.
