The Cadet Leadership Academy is an 18 week course teaching life skills at an early age.
Recruits are taught lessons on a variety of topics by experts in the subject. Classes range from ethics and morality to finance and health. Possibly the greatest reward of this program is the social interaction that cadets have with like-minded peers that are driven to succeed. By the time they graduate, these recruits have been instilled with a sense of character and pride that cannot be quantified.
