The Barbados Cadet Corps
As the youth arm of the Barbados Defence Force, the Barbados Cadet Corps is set up to provide challenging activities and military discipline to create model citizens. The Barbados Cadet Corps was the first organisation to be sub-licensed to deliver the Award in the Eastern Caribbean. This agreement was made in 2015. As a partner youth organisation the Corps is able to use the Award as an incentive for continued participation among the older ranks.
Cadets are introduced to the Award as part of the Star 2 Programme. As they progress through the Star levels up to Master Cadet, they fulfill most of the requirements of the Award sections, with minor additions to complete on their own.
