Youth Programs

The New York Council Youth Programs are under the umbrella of the Youth Committee. The youth programs include NJROTC Cadet units, the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet units as well as support of the Office of Naval research's STEM program called SeaPerch.

NJROTC

 The NJROTC program was established by Public Law in 1964. The program is conducted at accredited secondary schools through out the nation, and taught by instructors who are retired Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard officers and enlisted personnel. The NJROTC accredited curriculum emphasizes citizenship and leadership development, as well as our maritime heritage, the significance of sea power, and naval topics such as the fundamentals of naval operations, seamanship, navigation and meteorology. Classroom instruction is augmented throughout the year by extra curricular activities of community service, academic, drill and orienteering competitions, visits to naval or other activities and physical fitness training.

The New York Council directly supports the Graphics Campus and George Washington NJROTC units that consist of 250 cadets and 150 cadets respectively. The Graphics Campus NJROTC unit is embedded in a high school campus building on West 49th Street. The George Washington NJROTC unit is embedded in a high school campus building in Washington Heights.  

The NJROTC cadets often appear at New York Council events such as the Fleet Week Foreign Officer's Reception, The Veterans Day Parade and the Navy League's Annual Dinner where high performing cadets are recognized. Each year college stipends are given to selected cadets who have excelled in the program.

Sea Cadets

The U.S. Naval Sea Cadets Corp program is a federal non-profit civilian youth organization comprised of two programs: The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) program if for young people ages 13 through 17 and the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) for young people 11 through 13. At the request of the Department of the Navy, the Navy League of the United States established the Sea Cadet program in 1962 to "create a favorable image of the Navy on the part of American youth." Today's U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps continues to further the image of our maritime services by adhering to a standardized training program designed to:

1. Develop an interest and ability in seamanship and seagoing skills.

2. Instill virtues of good citizenship and strong moral principles in each cadet.

3. Demonstrate the value of an alcohol-free, drug-free and gang-free lifestyle.

4. Expose cadets to the prestige of public service and a variety of career paths through hands-on training with our nation's armed services.

In 2015, The New York Council resumed its support of the Sea Cadet program with the George Washington unit that currently consists of thirty cadets. College stipends will also be given to selected cadets who have excelled in the program.

SeaPerch

Sea Perch is an adjunct to the STEM program that develops skills for students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The students compete in teams to build underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle's (ROV) from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. Students must also create a communication post detailing the team's information and graphic expertise. The goal of the program is to increase the number of U.S. engineers and to maintain the Navy’s Science and Technology superiority. 

On March 29, 2015, the New York Council supported the SeaPerch regional competition at the Aquatic Center in Queens, NY. Our Executive Secretary, George Simpson helped present awards to the winning teams.
