CADETS: Sea and land adventures

Sea Cadets, a national youth charity with 400 units, is calling on young people aged between ten and 17 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.

Our #NeverOrdinary campaign aims to raise awareness of what the charity has to offer.

You can enjoy sailing, kayaking, rowing and power-boating, as well as life-changing offshore voyages on one of our five vessels. We also offer 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. You don’t need any qualifications; all you need is commitment and enthusiasm.

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