U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps, 251 Rudy Chase Drive NOSC, Schenectady, New York


The Sea Cadets Corps has over 3,250 volunteers that have dedicated over 278,000 hours of their time every year! Our adults guide our cadets towards a future filled with adventure, leadership, teamwork, knowledge, and friendship. Join us on our mission to build leaders of character. 

A volunteer must possess good moral character, a sound mind, and be capable of credibly communicating our Sea Cadet core values to our cadets. Each adult must be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident, free of felony convictions, and will undergo a background investigation during the enrollment process.

1. Officer Corps: Ranked officers allow us to create structure for our cadets similar to the Sea Services. Volunteers may elect to wear modified Navy uniforms.

2. Midshipmen and Instructors: All new Sea Cadet volunteers will enter as either a Midshipman or Instructor. 

3. Auxiliary: The Auxiliary is intended for adults who wish to make a limited time commitment to the Sea Cadets or perform limited duties.
