Jamaica Combined Cadet Force marks Founders Week Nov 5 to 1

THE Jamaica Combined Cadet Force (JCCF) will be staging a number of activities from November 5 to 11 in observance of Founders Week.

Speaking with the JIS News, commandant of the JCCF, Colonel Errol Johnson, said the commemoration will serve to showcase the journey and growth of the cadet force, which came into being on November 1, 1943.

He noted that the JCCF is one of the oldest youth organisations in Jamaica and that it caters to the holistic development of young people aged 12 to 18, providing mental, moral and physical training so as to build discipline and character and instil in them the idea of service to community and country.
