The International Exchange Program (IEP) represents the pinnacle of training for Sea Cadets. It is the mission of the IEP to provide specialized education, training and the opportunity to travel abroad for qualified Sea Cadets who have an interest in learning about the cultural differences and nautical traditions that strengthen us as a global community. Working with the International Sea Cadet Association and administered by an all-volunteer staff, officers and cadets travel overseas to build friendships and to experience the Sea Cadet world through a new lens. It is our hope that these enriching international exchanges lead cadets to a lifelong multicultural understanding and a new perspective on their roles as global citizens.
