Wanted: keen new Sea Cadets and volunteers
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.
