Middle School Cadets
The Cadet Leadership program is an after school program operated by the Sheriff’s Youth Activities Lee (SYAL) under the instruction of the School Resource Officers (SRO). It offers middle school students the opportunity to positively interact with law enforcement while amplifying their leadership and problem solving skills. Cadets learn about the dangers of drugs, the prevention of bullying and campus violence, social media safety, dealing with peer pressure and other issues affecting today’s youth on and off campus. Additionally, the program imparts the values of teamwork, responsibility and integrity.
