New Zealand Cadet Forces Mission is to develop confident, responsible young citizens who are valued within their community by providing them, within a military framework, safe, enjoyable and challenging opportunities. We achieve this by offering a variety of skills and activities that young teenagers do not get with other youth organisation.
We are part of the New Zealand Cadet Forces (NZCF) which is for both boys and girls aged 13 to 18. It comprises of the Sea Cadet Corps, the New Zealand Cadet Corps and the Air Training Corps. NZCF is a voluntary, disciplined, uniformed youth training organisation whose vision is to train and prepare the youth of today for tomorrow. The organisation is not part of the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF), but is directed by the Chief of Defence Force, on behalf of the Minister of Defence, and is supported in partnership by the NZDF and the community.
