Region Cadet Leadership School

The Northeast Region Leadership School (RCLS) promises to be a fun, challenging, and rewarding experience.  RCLS is designed for Cadet Officers to learn new skills and knowledge they need to be more effective leaders in their home squadrons and wings. The RCLS blends classroom theory with hands on training to help cadets truly grasp the concepts they are being presented.  There will be daily assignments and group discussions on leadership, ethics, and management.  Cadets will be presented with leadership concepts and challenges and will be expected to solve those challenges.  Classes ranging from Civil Air Patrol & Air Force core values and ethics to management and leadership will be presented.  Cadets will be given daily leadership assignments, both individual and group, that they will have to complete. The students that attend the NER RCLS will be expected to staff themselves, and maintain the highest standards of academic performance and behavior. The RCLS is academically challenging and the students will have to manage their own time to ensure that they successfully complete RCLS.  The students that attend this RCLS will be Cadet Officers, and they will be treated as such.There is one theme that permeates all of RCLS, that is the concept of servant leadership. It is summed up in our motto “Protelo est Ministro”, which means “to Lead is to Serve”.

The following wings will be hosting future RCLS courses:
