BOLD for Corps Cadets/BOLD para Cadetes Locales

The overall goal of the Corps Cadet program is to prepare our young people for a lifelong commitment to spiritual growth and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and for serving God and The Salvation Army to the fullest extent possible. A program aimed at 13-18 year-olds, this required program holds classes during the months of September through May, taking one month off in winter (either December or January).

The BOLD for Corps Cadets curriculum is a student-based learning format in which students actively participate in activities and discussions and make discoveries rather than having teachers dictate all facts and ideas. Through the lessons, corps cadets understand biblical truths and derive important principles to apply to their own life situations.


  • To provide an atmosphere in which spiritual growth can occur
  • To provide opportunities for development of leadership skills
  • To deepen their knowledge and appreciation of Salvation Army history, policies, and practices
  • To provide training and opportunities to develop soul-winning experiences
  • To provide an opportunity for Christian fellowship and relationship-building in a safe and caring small group
