BOGOTA, N.J. -- Businesses, organizations or individuals can sponsor a cadet during this summer's sixth annual Bogota Police Emergency Services Youth Academy.
The academy, launched by borough police in the summer of 2011, exposes middle schoolers to the importance of community and public service.
Classes are equally split between girls and boys who get a military model of mental and physical training that aims to instill confidence, integrity, and self esteem.
With registration at $175 per cadet, academy officials are hoping civic-minded citizens will help ease the burden on families who might have trouble affording it. They are accepting full or partial sponsorships.
BogotaBlogNJ.com was one of the first sponsors to step up.
