California Cadet Corps

Multi-quarter part-time
Education & Youth Development

The California Cadet Corps is an organization that offers a school-based applied leadership program, founded in 1911 by the California Legislature and then Adjutant General BG Edwin A. Forbes, and thought to be the oldest of its kind in the country. The program is designed to provide maximum growth and leadership opportunities for cadets from elementary through high school levels, stressing six objectives: developing leadership skills, enhancing academic achievement, fostering good citizenship, promoting patriotism, providing basic military knowledge, and encouraging health, wellness, and fitness.

The mission statement of our parent organization is to create outstanding leadership development opportunities for students and to transform students into tomorrow’s leaders and community builders. Our organization at Stanford would facilitate this vision by giving adults the framework to support the cadet students within the program as they develop their leadership skills.
