A BIT ABOUT US
Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
Since 2018 the New York Naval Cadet Corps has been committed to providing American youth with a drug and alcohol-free environment. To foster their leadership abilities, broaden their horizons through hands-on training, and guide them to becoming mature young adults. The New York Naval Cadet Corps (NYNCC) program is for young people ages 9 through 17.
Today's New York Naval Cadet Corps continues to further the image of our maritime services by adhering to a standardized training program designed to:
Develop an interest and ability in seamanship and seagoing skills
Instill virtues of good citizenship and strong moral principles in each cadet
Demonstrate the value of an alcohol-free, drug-free and gang-free lifestyle
Expose cadets to the prestige of public service and a variety of career paths through hands-on training with our nation's armed service
After enrolling in the program, all New York Naval Cadets must attend a mandatory two-week recruit training session. These training sessions occur at our home base P.S. 14 in Queens. The cadets receive 90 days of instruction, with a focus on the Navy's core values of honor, courage, and commitment. Both tone and tenor of teaching are modeled after the Navy's recruit training.
At New York Naval Cadet Corps, we also raise funds and promote initiatives to serve the people who need them most. By building trust, empowering, and training leaders of tomorrow. We believe in taking action with the urgency to raise public awareness about some of the most pressing issues facing today's society. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of others.
“I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy.”
― John F. Kennedy
