100th Regiment seeking Cadet Program graduates

(Press release)

The recreated 100th Regiment is seeking Cadet Program graduates to fill anticipatory military interpreter leadership roles.

Dressed in the uniform of the 100th Regiment in 1814, members have the unique opportunity to perform early 19th century military drills and music for visitors from all over the world right in the heart of the nation’s capital.

Senior Sea, Army, and Air Cadets that have or will soon age out of the cadet program and have attained a minimum cadet rank of Petty Officer 1st Class, Warrant Officer, or Flight Sergeant and that meet all other requirements can apply to be a military interpreter and take part in the 100th Regiment’s Junior Leader Program (JLP).

JLP graduates will be appointed to the role of a non-commissioned officer in the Recreated 100th Regiment as positions become available.

“Our organization is expanding and we are looking for youth with leadership experience and a certain skill set already developed” says William Sinka, 100th Regt. Historical Society President “Senior cadets have already been in charge of groups, commanded formations on parade, and lectured in classrooms so it is easier for them to hit the ground running in the role of a non-commissioned officer.”

Candidates that meet all the requirements must send their résumé, cadet corps contact info, and copies of any qualification certificates before the closing date for applications on December 4th, 2015 at 17:00 hrs.

“This is a great opportunity for senior cadets that have not decided to move into either the Cadet Instructor Cadre or the Canadian Forces but would like to continue in a uniform and love history.” Sinka said “It is an easy transition from one uniform to the other and they get to put the leadership and other skills they worked hard to develop in cadets to use while gaining valuable work related experience.”
