Other Special Opportunities for Cadets

Cadet Honor Academy

The Cadet Honor Academy prepares cadets to serve on color guards and honor guards while simultaneously furthering their individual character development. Cadet Honor Academies are hosted by Regions and may be conducted as a "weekend" activity.

Red Ribbon Leadership Academy

The Red Ribbon Leadership Academy places high school aged cadet NCOs and officers in front of middle school students (non-cadets) to serve as role models and leadership educators during a 3-hour workshop. The "red ribbon" symbolizes the Academy's role in promoting the drug-free ethic. RRLA is a great opportunity for cadets to hone their leadership skills and for the squadron to increase its visibility in the community and do some recruiting.
