We currently are accepting applications for young men and women to fill vacancies with our New York and New Jersey based units.

Cadets are instructed by Naval Reserve Officers, Sea Cadet Officers, and senior cadets through classroom and applied instruction in subjects such as basic seamanship, military drill, and leadership.

Regional units will often participate in community events such as parades and fairs. They may also tour or train aboard Navy and Coast Guard ships and shore stations. They may participate in community service such as working in Veterans' Hospitals and organizing clothing and food drives.

Sea Cadet training consists of Navy Non-Resident Correspondence Courses (NRCC), two-week training schools, shipboard training, and training arranged at the local unit level.

Two-week training (TWT) mostly takes place during summer months and occasionally during winter and spring break. The first TWT for all cadets is NSCC Recruit Training, better known as boot camp presently being held at various Naval training facilities. Boot camp is a scaled down version of the Navy's boot camp. For the two-week period, cadets are instructed by active, reserve military personnel and Sea Cadet officers in military drill and discipline, physical fitness, seamanship, shipboard safety, first aid, naval history, and leadership.

After cadets have successfully completed boot camp, they can then participate in advanced training. Advanced training currently consists of airman school (aviation), FAA ground school, Seabee school (civil engineering), submarine seminar, hospital corpsman school (medical), seal team training, amphibious training, petty officer leadership academy, master-at-arms school (military police/law), and shipboard training to name just some.

Sea Cadet training is held throughout the continental United States, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Guam on military installations.

In addition to the above, those cadets who exhibit extraordinary initiative and leadership ability may participate in annual exchanges with Sea Cadet Organizations around the world.

The Naval Sea Cadet Corps provides its cadets the opportunity to develop at an early age character and qualities of a good and productive citizen.

We are also looking for adult leaders
