BOLD for Corps Cadets is a practical training that provides the individual an opportunity to discover and develop potential for effective leadership in The Salvation Army as a soldier or an officer.
The curriculum is a collection of units written by Salvation Army writers and published by The Salvation Army. BOLD stands for: Bible study, Our Heritage, Leadership and Discipleship; and the units reflect these themes.
The BOLD Scope and Sequence is a five year overview of the 10 courses to be completed in the Corps Cadets Curriculum.
- Questions are taken from the lessons within each month. There is also one reflection question designed to help the corps cadet apply the lesson to their lives.
- When the four-week lesson is complete, the Corps Cadet Counselor, the Corps Cadet and the Corps Officer are to sign the monthly report before it is sent to DHQ.
- Lessons are to be completed and sent to DHQ by the 10th of the following month.
