NSCC Parent’s Group Mission Statement

The mission of this Parent’s Group is to work together supporting the division staff and our Cadets. We welcome the new parent and communicate with each other and the staff as questions and issues arise. By participating in these endeavors we will help our cadets achieve a higher level of excellence. 


MEETING DATES

We will be holding a parents' meeting on Saturday, 15 October, 2016 at 1400 hrs (that's 2:00PM). The CO will be back with us and will make an appearance to address any questions you might have. If there is anything you would like him to specifically address please send it to me via email and I will provide it to him. As most of you know, the CO is quite willing to diecuss anything that concerns you.


We Need Your Help!

We maintain a Parents’ working group to help in various ways. A Parent's working group exists to assist parents with their questions, concerns, or just having another parent to talk to about their Cadet's progress in the Sea Cadet Program. This support group is open to all parents.

As a parent of a cadet, you should know that we cannot be fully successful without your parental support. In many cases, the Naval Sea Cadet Corps can have a substantial impact on your child’s future. It is important to us that that impact is positive.

Parents need to understand our program and reinforce our stated goals and values but moreover, they need to communicate to our command.

A Parents Committee is made up of the READY & WILLING family members of our Sea Cadets and is one of our primary vehicles to keep our program relevant. It is a Non-Political group formed to assist in providing our Cadets with the highest quality program and lending a needed helping hand to the commanding officer and his staff in tapping local resources that many parents have but may not fully realize.

If you have a son or daughter who is a cadet, then WELCOME, you are already a Team TRD member, the level of your involvement is up to you. We encourage you to help us help your sons and daughters.

The Parents’ Group generally meets at the SFO Moriches facility and will keep our command aware of potential problems and help us formulate solutions. Other areas in which the Parents’ Group can assist includes cadet transportation, input for creative training and educational projects, administrative support & fund raising to name a few. The commanding officer provides some general guidance but the direction and depth of the group’s function will be up to the group members and its Chairperson. The Chairperson will be a parent and will be a special assistant to the commanding officer.

We need ALL HANDS ON DECK to accomplish this dynamic program. Meetings will be determined by the Committee members. There are many ways you can help: you don’t have to be a full-time group member; you don’t have to be a full-time uniformed instructor or other full-time volunteer. Once this group is formed, anyone can contact a group member and offer some ideas or assistance on a one-time basis or periodically, as you feel you can. We hope that all of our parents will support this effort to whatever degree you can.

If you are a new parent, please consider joining. We need your support.

If you’d like more information on the parents group, have suggestions or have any questions, please send me an email with your questions or input.

By working as a solid Team – Parent - Instructors - Cadet, we can achieve the goals of our "character building program".

Thank you for your support
