The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is made up of two programs. The Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) is the junior program for young people ages 10-13. The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) is the senior program for young people ages 13-17. American youth ages 10-17 who have a desire to learn about the Sea Services; Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. Sea Cadets are authorized by the Secretary of the Navy to wear Navy uniforms appropriately marked with the Sea Cadet Corps insignia. The objectives of the Sea Cadet program are to introduce youth to naval life in a hands-on, real-world environment, to develop in them a sense of pride, patriotism, courage, and self-reliance, and to maintain an environment free of drugs and gangs.
We support each other.
