The RCL #176 is a committed to the sponsorship of the Cadet Corps, which is comprised of youth 7 to 16 years of age. Under the guidance of RCL 176 members Rosalind Smith and Denise Keenan the Cadet's experience various projects to build leadership skills, understanding collaborative relationships, citizenship, and reflect stewardship through intergenerational collaboration. They also learn, loyalty, trust, poise, and positive communication approaches.
Recently, through the support of Vancouver Foundation's Neighbourhood Small Grant administered by Kitsilano Neighbourhood House, Rosalind and Denise chose to use their grant to work with the Cadet's on a project for the beautification of the side garden at the RCL #176 - The Billy Bishop. As the Cadets worked along side seniors and other volunteers from the community, they created a colourful and welcoming garden space.
