Young people urged to join the Jamaica Combined Cadet Force
KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) — Minister of State in the Ministry of National Security, Pearnel Charles Jr, is urging young persons to join the Jamaica Combined Cadet Force (JCCF).
Speaking at a recent JIS 'Think Tank', he said the JCCF is one of the best vehicles to create the kind of Jamaica that the Government is moving towards in terms of a crime-free country.
Charles Jr said young Jamaicans can utilise the JCCF as a tool to aid in their development and that of the country.
“I am making an appeal to all cadet alumni and all persons who are relatives of cadets to get on board. Sign up, find a way to make a contribution, whether it is financial by supporting our Trust, which we hope will provide scholarships for cadets and adult officers, or whether it is to help us to identify resources to equip the band and the engineer regiment and other battalions… just get on board,” he urged.
