Cadets have opportunities to study advanced leadership concepts in two settings:
Cadet Officer School - The premiere leadership experience for CAP cadets is conducted annually at Maxwell AFB, home of the USAF's Air University. Visit the COS home page for more information.
Region Cadet Leadership Schools - These academies make use of local resources to broaden leadership skills in cadet officers and NCOs The Curriculum is available in the document to the right, RCLS Guidance. A list of upcoming schools is available on the e-Services calendar.
NEW- $1500 available to support RCLS. To request funds, region DCPs should contact Joanna Lee at NHQ (firstname.lastname@example.org) and provide an activity plan or schedule showing that the RCLS will be following the guidelines set forth below. If a region hosts more than one RCLS, the NHQ funding remains the same and the region decides how it will divide those funds between its schools. Submit funding requests by 1 May annually; after that date NHQ may release the funds to other cadet-related programs. Funds must be spent by 30 September. (October 2014)
Region Directors of Cadet Programs: Please post your activities on the e-Services Calendar.
RCLS are listed in the CAP Interactive Calendar as wings make us aware of their events.
