Proposal

This tag is to be used to map the locations where various Youth Cadet groups meet, together with details of each group.

Rationale

Youths, usually aged ~12-18, make up Cadet groups which are intended to introduce them to the operations of many organisations, frequently Emergency (Police, Fire & Ambulance), as well as the various Military, Services. They are broadly similar, but also somewhat different, to Scouts / Guides.

Cadet units can be found in a variety of locations: in the operational station of their parent group; within the grounds of Secondary Schools / Colleges; in the case of Military Cadets, frequently inside actual Military bases; while in other cases, they meet in Community Centres.

How to Map

Actual mapping would be as either an area or a node, depending on where the group is located.

Where the group occupies it's own exclusive building, draw an area around that building, and tag it as:
building=yes + club=cadet + cadet=*.

If the group shares space in a multi-use building e.g. an operational Emergency Station, School or Community Centre, map the building itself (if it's not already mapped) as building=* (e.g. fire_station; school; community_centre), then add a node to that building as: club=cadet + cadet=*.

If two Cadet groups share the same building e.g. both an Army and an Air Cadet unit, tag as:
building=yes + club=cadet, then add two nodes, in this case
club=cadet + cadet=army and also club=cadet + cadet=air, each with their own details.

In the case of Military Cadets, then the building is NOT to be tagged with landuse=military, as Cadets are NOT considered to be part of a country's Military forces. On those occasions when the Cadet building is located on the grounds of an actual military establishment, it will however, still be included under that area's landuse=military.

Similarly, separate cadet buildings are not to be tagged as Police, Fire or Ambulance etc Stations.

Common Tags

Name

Tagging will be in the format:
club=cadet + cadet=* = Police / Fire / Ambulance / SES etc, based on the it's parent group; or, for Military cadets, as Sea / Army / Air / Joint. - N.B. Format for Military Cadets is still under discussion

The format of the name will (eventually) be discussed on the home page of each "type" of cadet group

Operator

operator=*, including the full name e.g. operator=Queensland State Emergency Service

If you know the Wikidata code for that operator, that can also be included as: operator:wikidata=*

Hours

Use the normal opening_hours=* tag to show what time/s the Group meets i.e. the time that the Cadets are usually there, not permanent staff / instructors e.g. opening_hours=Tu 18:00-21:00
