The Squadron Sponsoring Committee (“The SSC”) is a non-profit organization that is governed by the Air Cadet League of Canada. We are volunteers and parents of the cadets in our squadron whose purpose is to assist the squadron’s leadership cadre with funding and organization of many of its training and social activities. The purpose of the Air Cadet Program is to develop leadership skills, citizenship, physical fitness, aircrew survival, and foster an interest in aviation among youth aged 12 to 18 years of age. While our cadets parade every Tuesday night, they also have the opportunity to participate in any of the following activities that take place throughout the year:
- Summer Training
- Ground School
- Band -Field Training Exercises
- Air Crew Survival
- Effective Speaking
- Flag Party
- Drill team
- Sports Days
- Field Trips
- Remembrance Day Ceremonies
- And many, many more…
The role of the SSC is crucial to the Air Cadet Program by funding those activities not covered by the Department of National Defense (“The DND”) and by providing volunteer support as needed. Some areas where the SSC provides financial support include bus transportation, meals, awards, equipment and supplies, fuel, storage and maintenance for our Cessna, administrative costs and advertising. Without sufficient funding or volunteer support, many of the programs that your child enjoys are in jeopardy.
We are looking for donations and volunteer support to continue providing one of the best programs available for building up the youth of tomorrow and are counting on your support.
If you are able to help with a financial donation, please make a cheque payable to “132 RCAC Spitfire”. We are happy to provide a tax receipt for donations over $20.00.
Did you know that many employers match employee donations? Ask if yours does!
If you are able to volunteer your time in any capacity, please contact the SSC Chair, either in person or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for supporting the cadets in any way you can,
Your Squadron Sponsoring Committee
