I am a female Fire Education Specialist and instructor for the California Cadet Academy.

I'm trying to get the word out about this awesome summer camp that focuses on career development. The California Cadet Academy is exposing kids to a college environment while providing basic training in Firefighting, Law Enforcement and Emergency Medical Service. The Academy is run by Deputy Sheriffs, Police Officers & Firefighters from the Bay Area who volunteer their time to keep kids off the streets.

Our academies are one week in duration and are designed to get kids excited about education. We train kids aged 13 to 19 who are looking for a rewarding career and chance to make a difference in our community. The students learn lifesaving skills while preparing themselves for the future. You can visit our website at www.Calcadet.com to see pictures and videos of our past cadets in action.

Quick Facts: 100% of our senior cadets have gone on to graduate from high school. 73% of those graduates are attending college. 33% of our graduates have entered police and fire explorer programs and 20% have become full-time Firefighters or Paramedics.

We want to help every kid in California succeed in life and become productive members of our community. The only thing preventing us from saving these kids is financial support. The California Cadet Academy is a 501 (c) 3 California non-profit organization Federal Tax Identification Number #54-2186405

Please check out our website. We are currently recruiting for this years academy.
