You Can Make a Difference
Officers may either be civilians or military (active, reserve or retired) who enjoy working with youth and are interested in ensuring that their training experience is of the highest caliber. Instructors are also recruited from reserve military commands and leaders within the community. Members of the Naval Reserve may qualify for drill credit and active duty for training (ADT) orders for participating in NSCC/NLCC activities.
Adult applicants must be in good health commensurate with their age group and be free from any ailment or condition that would prevent them from satisfactorily performing their primary duty of supervising youth. Adults not physically qualified to perform all duties may still participate with a waiver from NHQ considering the parameters of their expected contribution to the USNSCC program.
In order to join the USNSCC Officer Corps applicants must meet the following criteria:
Must be a U.S. citizen
Be at least 21 years old (or become an NSCC Midshipman if you are between the ages of 18-21)
Pass a criminal background check
