About the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps

Since 1958 the Naval Sea Cadet Corps has been committed to providing American youth with a drug and alcohol free environment to foster their leadership activities, broaden their horizons through hands-on training and guide them to becoming mature young adults.

Sea Cadet organizations exist in most of the maritime nations of the world. Recognizing the value of these organizations in educating youth in maritime matters, the Department of the Navy requested the Navy League of the United States to establish a similar program for American youth. The Navy League agreed to do so and formally established the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) and Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) in 1958. Recognizing the importance and benefits of the NSCC, Congress on September 10, 1962 federally incorporated the Naval Sea Cadet Corps under Public Law 87-655 (36 USC 1541).

USNSCC Celebrates 50 years

The Naval Sea Cadet Corps was federally incorporated on September 10, 1962 by Act of Congress under Public Law 87-655 as a non-profit organization with specific objectives and purposes in regard to the training and character development of American youth. In this, the fiftieth year since the NSCC was formally established, we celebrate how the Corps has contributed to thousands of current and former Cadets in the development of strong core values, discipline and teamwork. These attributes have benefitted many former Cadets by enabling their success in all walks of life, be it the military, government or business. Our efforts will assist current and future Cadets in the same ways, and will in turn spark the spirit of achievement that has so often thrust our Cadets into lifetimes of selfless service.
