Mr. Jassal has been working extensively with 538 Buffalo Air Cadet League as chair casino and advocating for the free federal Government program of Air Cadet since 2013 to raise awareness among the youth between the ages of 12 years to 18 years. Mr. Jassal's contributions were both acknowledged and appreciated by 538 Buffalo Air Cadet League with the appreciation award in 2015.
Mr. Jassal frequently organizes community awareness events, sets up information booths and reaches out to youth the ages of 12 to 19 years old through media, newspapers and community news letters.
Mr. Jassal' s advocacy has helped a 100’s of youths from different communities to enroll in Air cadet program.
The purposes of the League are to advance the education of the Air Cadets and to promote an interest in the air element of the Canadian Forces. Young Canadians aged 12 to 18 can participate in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities and learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship.
Air Cadets are not members of the Canadian Forces. The movement is, however, sponsored by the Department of National Defence in partnership with the Air Cadet League of Canada.
Hirde always encourages parents to join squadron as volunteer, because without members and volunteers many activities in a Squadron would not take place. Members and Volunteers give their time in a variety of ways, for example: running the canteen, driving Cadets to and from events, publishing a newsletter, coordinating a mess dinner, helping with special events, assisting with summer course selections and promotion interviews, coordinating the Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards program, being a band master, a Web Master, a photographer or a media relations representative for the Squadron and so on. They want the Squadron to be successful and to be part of making that happen.
