We are the UK’s largest maritime youth charity supporting around 14,000 young people by giving them an opportunity to challenge and grow in confidence. We are a uniformed youth organisation based on the traditions of the Royal Navy.
We offer a wide range of activities from sailing and canoeing, rock climbing, engineering, IT and communications, to music and cookery. We aim to encourage good citizenship and provide worthwhile qualifications (including the Duke of Edinburgh award and BTEC), experience and adventure for young people. Cadets have the opportunity to learn life skills whilst having fun and making friends. Sea Cadets is open to all young people aged 12 to 18, with Junior sections open to those of 10 to 12 years of age.
We also require adult volunteers to work directly with young people as instructors or to help run our unit as a member of the management committee.
