1292 Support Society

1292 Army Cadet Support Society formed by a group of dedicated cadet parents in 2004 and registered under the AB Society Act. The purpose of Support Society is to work in partnership with Corps staff to support the cadet unit. Our combined goal is to provide a safe, fun, rewarding and challenging program for your child.

The Support Society helps out with:

  1. recruiting new cadets
  2. fundraising and managing the finances of the corps
  3. providing tax receipts to donors
  4. screening prospective volunteers
  5. providing snacks or meals for cadet functions

We encourage all parents to speak with a Board member to see how you may become involved. You can find one of us at beginning and end of parade nights, or contact us at 1292rcacc.parents@gmail.com

We always need parent volunteers!
