Bold For Corps Cadets Introduction from NHQ Media on Vimeo.

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.
