All Patriot cadets are encouraged to join one of our teams using this button.
The Unit Public Affairs Representative (UPAR) team is made up of Cadet Correspondents (CCs) who are the voice of the Cadet Program. They represent the Program from its best point of view: the cadets themselves. CCs are ambassadors and storytellers, using a combination of still and video imagery, and written products to tell their stories and those of their peers. Their creativity drives the Cadet story forward. They are leaders and liaisons between the public and the Cadet Program.
How will being a CC be beneficial to our corps?
The CC at the corps level can be considered a subject matter expert in certain Public Affairs functions in the Cadet Program. They should be assigned by the CO or UPAR Officer to:
- manage/post on the unit social media pages;
- draft articles for newspapers and social media;
- take photos and create videos for the unit; and,
- participate in Team events as they relate to PA;
