The Pals program is run by OICs and the cadet staff in conjunction with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County . This program allows cadets to serve as mentors to children on the waiting list for a big brother or sister in Orange County. Members simply serve as friends and positive influences. During the activities, the children tend to open up to the cadets and really listen to what theyhave to offer the child. It is this ‘one-to-one’ relationship that helps to sculpt a child from an oftentimes broken home. The trips include those to the YMCA Ropes Course, Six Flags Great Adventure, Army football game, ice skating, the Bronx Zoo and many more. This club runs activities about once a month, and it can certainly change a child’s life forever!
