Our 3,250 volunteers dedicate over 278,000 hours of their time every year! Our adults guide our cadets towards a future filled with adventure, leadership, teamwork, knowledge, and friendship. Join us on our mission to build leaders of character.
A volunteer must possess good moral character, a sound mind, and be capable of credibly communicating our Sea Cadet core values to our cadets. Each adult must be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident, free of felony convictions, and will undergo a background investigation during the enrolment process.
1. Officer Corps
Ranked officers allow us to create structure for our cadets similar to the Sea Services. Volunteers may elect to wear modified Navy uniforms.
2. Midshipmen and Instructors
All new Sea Cadet volunteers will enter as either a Midshipman or Instructor. Click the join button below to learn more information.
The Auxiliary is intended for adults who wish to make a limited time commitment to the Sea Cadets or perform limited duties.
The mission of the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps is to build leaders of character by imbuing in our cadets the highest ideals of honor, respect, commitment, and service.
