Civil Aid Service Cadet Corps
The Cadet Corps has the mission to encourage young people to develop skills and leadership through participating in group activities and training which are beneficial to the development of their mind and body. It aims at nurturing them to become future leaders and responsible citizens, building up their confidence, sense of responsibility, self-discipline and the spirit to serve others.
The CAS Headquarters also organises numerous all-round training classes for the cadets every year on first aid, basic rescue, crowd management, flag-raising, life-saving, canoeing, artistic cycling, rock climbing, musical instrument performance and so on. These enable cadets to acquire various extracurricular knowledge and skills.
The CAS also arranges competitions and tournaments on footdrill, camping, orienteering, etc which serve not only as chances for cadets to strive for excellence but also as chances to promote friendship among members of different teams. What is more, national education and mainland exchange activities are conducted to increase their understanding on the motherland.
The cadets can choose freely from the great varieties of classes and activities according to their own interest and time available. Outstanding cadets may be promoted to Senior Cadets, Deputy Cadet Leaders, Cadet Leaders and even Senior Cadet Leaders.
