LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. — The Lehigh Acres Fire Control and Rescue District is launching a Cadet Program this March to teach participants about their profession and provide access to mentors and volunteer opportunities.
Each Cadet will learn mental and physical wellness, a sense of self-responsibility, personal growth, leadership, discipline, teamwork, and fire prevention skills.
The program is open to participants between the ages of 14 and 20 years old.
A mandatory orientation meeting is scheduled for March 4, 2020, and the program will meet weekly year-round.
The initial program is limited to a class of 15 cadets.
