   Connecticut Sea Cadet Programs: 
       One of the key programs that the CT Council supports are the Connecticut-based Sea Cadets. Historically, our primary Sea Cadet unit was Dealey Division, based in Stamford.  This award-winning program, open to middle and high school aged boys and girls, fosters leadership, self-confidence, and informed patriotism and cititzenship.  The program has been in place for over 50 years, with Cadets going on to a wide varietey of academic and career fields.  There is no military service requirement for Cadets.  Cadets attend training sessions one evening per week during the school year and also training at various locations for part of each summer.  They compete in a variety of contests with other Cadet units in New England, and have traditionally been top winners in many of these events.
     Once our Council was expended in mid-2020 to cover all of Connecticut, three other similar, fine Sea Cadet units became part of our efforts:
  • Barque Eagle Division, Plainville  
  • Edson Division, New Haven 
  • Nautilus Division, New London
     Sea Cadet units require funding support to help pay for off-site training, for uniforms where a Cadet's family budget is stretched, for transportation to events and competitions, and so forth.  The CT Council assists with such costs.  We also solicit outside tax-deductible donations from individuals - see below.
