Wanted: keen new Sea Cadets and vol­un­teers

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

THIS month, Sea Cadets – a na­tional youth char­ity with 400 units across the coun­try – is call­ing on young peo­ple aged be­tween 10 and 17 to come on board to see how be­ing a cadet can make a dif­fer­ence to their lives.

We of­fer wa­ter-based and land-based ad­ven­ture at a heav­ily-sub­sidised cost, open­ing up count­less op­por­tu­ni­ties to all young peo­ple, re­gard­less of their back­ground.

Through­out Fe­bru­ary, our #Nev­erOr­di­nary cam­paign aims to raise aware­ness of what the char­ity has to of­fer. With us, you can en­joy sail­ing, kayak­ing, row­ing and power-boat­ing, as well as lifechang­ing off­shore voy­ages on one of our five ves­sels.

But did you know we also of­fer so much more, in­clud­ing first-aid train­ing, rock-climb­ing, five-a-side foot­ball, band prac­tice, phys­i­cal train­ing and marine en­gi­neer­ing, as well as an In­ter­na­tional Ex­change Pro­gramme and the Duke of Ed­in­burgh’s Award? We are al­ways look­ing for vol­un­teers to help, too. You don’t need any qual­i­fi­ca­tions; all you need is com­mit­ment and en­thu­si­asm. We will pro­vide the train­ing.

In a re­cent sur­vey by Sea Cadets, 79% of our cadets said they get use­ful qual­i­fi­ca­tions with us, while 94% of par­ents said they felt their child’s self-con­fi­dence, mo­ti­va­tion and team work had “greatly im­proved” at Sea Cadets.
