Welcome to the website of the Dominica Cadet Corps
We are alumni of the Dominica Cadet Corps who, committed to ensuring the continuity and noble legacy of that organization, have sought to organize ourselves in support of the program.
It is the task of the Dominica Cadet Corps Association International (DCCAI) – to engage the energy, enthusiasm, and generosity of DCCAI alumni, parents, and friends in order to strengthen their bonds to the organization.
About Dominica Cadet Corps.
We are alumni of the Dominica Cadet Corps (DCC) who, committed to ensuring the continuity and noble legacy of that organization, have sought to organize ourselves in support of the program.
We have formed a support group for the Dominica Cadet Corps linked to Rebuild Dominica, Inc., a US 501(c) (3) non profit organization.
“Rebuild Dominica Inc,” a non- profit relief organization based in Washington DC, helping to rebuild Dominica after the devastation caused by Tropical Storm Erika, has embarked on a fund raising campaign to get much needed funds towards the purchase of new uniforms and gear for the Cadet Corps units in Dominica.
The Cadet Corps institution which has been existence in Dominica for decades was established to develop qualities of discipline, equity, democracy, civic duty, leadership among the country’s youth.
Of Nation Building
It is a stormy morning in July 1974 and I rest quietly in my bunk at Camp Londonderry on Dominica’s wind-swept Atlantic east coast. It is hurricane season in our Caribbean and the dark grey clouds which I glimpse through the aluminum louvers are common fare for this time of year.
I am leaving the second form to enter the third form at the venerable Dominica Grammar School (DGS), and I am about to begin my third year as a cadet. In 1972 I had joined the cadets in my first week at school.
