USNSCC is a national youth leadership development organization that promotes interest and skill in naval disciplines while instilling strong moral character and life skills through leadership and technical programs modeled after the Navy’s professional development system.
USNSCC is comprised of two programs. The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) program is for young people ages 13 through the completion of high school. Also included under the USNSCC umbrella is our junior program the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC), for young people ages 10 through 13.
Run by a national staff in Arlington, Virginia, we are sponsored by the Navy League of the United States and supported by both the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard.
Our unparalleled training program is designed to:
- Develop 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, drug and gang free lifestyle.
- Introduce cadets to the prestige of a military career with accelerated advancement potential of those who decide to join our nation’s uniformed services.
