Destination 225 Hopefull

New Arrival

Hello fellow hopefuls and team members of Destination 225,


Currently, I am 17 and just finishing up my senior year of high school. I am really looking forward to applying for the Cadet portion of this program. Would it be possible to apply now to the program or shall I wait until April when I turn 18?

Thank you for the response. I have looked through the FAQ's and unfortunately it doesn't say anything about the age requierments besides the fact that you need to be 18. My only question is that can I apply at 17 if in a couple of months I turn 18. Prior to turning 18 I would only be completing the interview and ADAPT testing.
