Adult Training: The Foundation for Cadet Success

Posted on August 17, 2023 at 2:43 PM by Elizabeth Hornbach

Adult leadership is the biggest factor affecting success in the cadet mission. Adult training programs such as Training Leaders of Cadets (TLC), Cadet Protection Program (CPP) and the Cadet Programs Specialty Track are the main resources for Cadet Programs Officers to gain professional development. As we endeavor to strategically position CAP for the future to Shape lives, build character, and ready young people for futures in aerospace and beyond, a goal in the strategic plan is to broaden adult leaders' capabilities as youth development professionals, equipping them to be champions of positive youth development practices proven effective in other youth organizations. With this in mind, we wanted to know how our CP adult training programs stacked up against other youth development organizations, while also determining if the programs meet the unique needs of our members. This is the process we took to determine what changes and imporovments needed to be made to our adult training programs.
