The Red Ribbon Leadership Academy places high school aged cadet NCOs and officers in front of middle school students (non-cadets) to serve as role models and leadership educators during a 3-hour workshop. The "red ribbon" symbolizes the Academy's role in promoting the drug-free ethic.
- To equip middle school student leaders with a basic understanding of the art and science of leadership.
- To promote the drug-free ethic among middle school student leaders by using CAP cadets as role models.
- To provide a venue for cadet officers and NCOs to apply their leadership skills.
- To increase the Cadet Program's visibility in the community and boost cadet recruiting.
