Army cadets nurturing our future leaders

THE Dalby Army Cadets have experienced a mini boom in the past four years and the group is looking to continue the upward trend.

In fact the Australian Army Cadets are pushing nationwide for more numbers, with professionalism, modernisation and growth the three key values driving the group to achieve its vision of becoming the leading youth development program in the country.

Dalby captain Joel Richters said now was the ideal time to join the cadets, as the group was looking for 20 more members.

"We are seeing unprecedented support from army both locally and nationally,” Mr Richters said.

"This all means our partnership between defence and community can deliver the very best experiences for our youth members.”

The Australian Army Cadets prides itself on creating experiences that will leave our youth better prepared for adulthood through programs that challenge them both mentally and physically.

To be a member of the cadets in 2018 you need to be 13 years old or be turning 13 this year. The maximum age is 17.
