Future First Responders of America [F.F.R.O.A.] Youth Program, parented by LEOCode4 is a Cadet Unit for Youth ages 13-18 that educates, trains and mentors young people about being a first responder in a multitude of capacities and agencies.

Youth apply to become Recruits in thier local Unit and after Academy Training, graduate as Cadets which go on to be eligable to earn rank, certifications, traveling, peer mentoring, and other opportunities.
Adult Volunteers, as well as the Board of Directors do not get paid for any of their time. 100% of the earned proceeds goes towards the F.F.R.O.A. Youth Program.
Because participating in the program may not be affordable to all youth, the Code4 Response Volunteers for the youth program also provides scholarships for Future First Responders to complete Academy training. This means that no child is ever turned away from a chance to attend and participate.
Other aspects and training each F.F.R.O.A. recruit obtains is certification in Medic First Aid, Teen Community Emergency Response Team, Peer Mentoring and more. Youth are also given activities to learn leadership, teamwork, respect and patriotism for their country.
