Wearing U.S. Navy uniforms (modified with USNSCC patches) and hands-on, exciting training aboard U.S. Navy/Coast Guard ships and shore stations make us unique among all other youth programs. Cadets have regular opportunities to train withActive Duty and Reserve military personnel. With close cooperation with all branches of the sea services, we offer demanding and rigorous training designed to prepare youth for all walks of life, whether they choose to pursue military service or civilian life. We are sponsored by the Navy League of the United States and supported by both the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard. Our individual units are sponsored by their local Navy League councils and/or by other local organizations.
The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a non-profit youth program for Americans ages 11 through completion of high school. We are composed of more than 396 units in 46 states, Guam and Puerto Rico.
We provide compelling, life-changing programs that instill the values of teamwork, discipline, camaraderie and service through our passionate all-volunteer force and our partnerships with our nation's armed forces.
