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.
