Corps Cadet Banner

A Corps Cadet is not just a member of a youth group or Sunday school class. Although an active participant in these groups, a Corps Cadet is a soldier between the ages of 13-18 years old who has taken up a training role within his or her Corps.

A Corps Cadet is a young Salvationist who undertakes a course of study and training at his own Corps in order to become qualified for efficient service in The Salvation Army.

Our Corps Cadets regularly take part in Sunday meetings as they prepare for future leadership roles. They have gone on many overnight retreats together and served in many other areas around the Corps. 

Corps Cadets can fulfill a void of discipleship we lack within our corps as we hold to this vital training ministry. The Corps Cadets have a regulations booklet to help develop a brigade properly within the Corps. 


CROSSTraining is a prescribed course of study in which Corps Cadets participate.  It is practical training to provide the individual an opportunity to discover and develop potential for effective leadership in The Salvation Army as a soldier or an officer.

The curriculum is a collection of units written by Word Action Publishing and Salvation Army approved writers.  The units include: Bible study, leadership training, and Salvation Army principles and practices.

The CROSSTraining Scope and Sequence is a five year overview of the 10 courses to be completed in the Corps Cadets Curriculum.


Designed for one question to be answered at the conclusion of each lesson.  The questions correspond with the week's lesson to be taught.

When the four-week lesson is complete, the Corps Cadet Counselor, the Corps Cadet and the Corps Officer are to sign the monthly report before it is sent to DHQ.

Lessons are to be completed and set to DHQ by the 10th of the following month.

CROSSTraining materials are ordered twice a year through the Divisional Youth Department.  Corps Officers send in their count and the DYS forwards it to THQ.

If you are interested in becoming a corps cadet, please contact your Corps Officer or Sarah Hite (Youth Department) for more information.
