Volunteer Job Offers

Our cadet Corps has been very fortunate to have a good group of volunteers to call on when needed and also to take on specific jobs and other tasks when needed. In the past two years we have seen a downturn in particiption and are making this callout for new volunteers.

In May we will be electing the next Executive and plan for the management of the 2018-2019 Support Committee along with filling in a need for new volunteers.

The CIC officers are supported by volunteers that are guided by the Army Cadet League (ACL) Liaison Officer. Those three streams of adult staff are very important and work together to provide training, financial support and guidance respectivley. The Support Committee and ACL are always in need of new help, new ideas and new energy.

Please share and distribute to your family and personal networks. Or volunteers are not obliged to be parents. They can be any extended family member, a member of the communty and even retiring cadets. Outgoing executive members and the ACL are and will be availalbe to help with the transition and learning.

Here are the Job descriptions for the positions we offer. We also can use your help and together share all our ideas to find solutions to help Canadaaès future leaders.

Historica Canadian Citizenship Quiz, Prizes -ACL

From ACL National office.

Hello All,

The following is worth sharing:
Put your national knowledge to the test!
See links in the message below.  Note that Historica Canada is also offering a learning tool created specifically for cadets.  This is worth sharing with your corps and their cadets. The challenge is also open to all who are interested in trying it.  

Here are more details and the links necessary to take the challenge: 

The Citizenship Challenge (http://www.citizenshipchallenge.ca/), offered by Historica Canada is a program that asks Canadians to test their national knowledge by studying for and writing a mock citizenship exam in French or English.  The program includes a mock citizenship quiz, based on the government of Canada’s citizenship test. This challenge might be of interest to Cadets Corps & squadrons as it is a useful resource for cadet leaders looking to broaden discussions of civics and history while encouraging cadets to engage in active citizenship. Top-scoring quiz takers are also entered in a draw to win great prizes!

Bonjour à tous, 

Historica Canada nous offre de mettre à l’épreuve nos connaissances du Canada.  Relevez le défi!  Ça vaut la peine de passer ce message aux corps et à leurs cadets.  Notez que tous peuvent relever ce défi si ça vous intéresse.
Voici plus d’information et les liens nécessaires pour relever le défi :
Le Défi de la citoyenneté (http://citizenshipchallenge.ca/fr/) invite les Canadiens à mettre leurs connaissances de notre pays à l'épreuve, en passant ce faux examen pour la citoyenneté en français ou en anglais, après avoir étudié en conséquence. Les questions du Défi de la citoyenneté sont inspirées du guide d’étude Découvrir le Canada, le même livret utilisé par les nouveaux arrivants pour se préparer à l’examen pour la citoyenneté. Ce défi pourrait être d’intérêt pour les corps/escadrons, car il offre des ressources utiles pour les officiers du CIC qui cherchent ouvrir la porte aux discussions de civisme et de notre histoire tout en encourageant leurs cadets devenir des citoyens actifs dans leurs communautés.  Les cadets qui obtiendront une note de 100% seront inscrits dans un tirage pour recevoir des d’excellents prix!
