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 small staff in Arlington, Virginia, we are sponsored by the Navy League of the United States and supported by both the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard.
The Goals of Our Cadet Programs
At the request of the Department of the Navy, the Navy League of the United States established the USNSCC 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:
Develop an 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-free, drug-free and gang-free lifestyle
Expose cadets to the prestige of public service and a variety of career paths through hands-on training with our nation's armed services
The Long Island Council supports four Naval Sea Cadet Units on Long Island. Below are those units, their drilling locations, a link to their website and contact information.
Voyage of Discovery
During the summer of 2017, a crew from the Theodore Roosevelt Division in East Moriches, cast off a life-changing experience aboard the Nada, a 47-foot sailing vessel. Six teenage U.S. Naval Sea Cadets from Long Island set sail from Mt. Sinai Harbor on Long Island Sound bringing back invaluable practical experience on the high seas and a wealth of tactical training. Captain Roger Noakes and three xperienced
crewmen sailed with the aspiring U.S. Navy Midshipmen aboard the Nada.
