By helping us with the financial administration of our charity, you will be an integral member of our Sea Cadet team. As a Sea Cadet young people flourish, learn key life skills and achieve qualifications in a range of areas, all of which boosts their confidence as they prepare for the rest of their lives. Sea Cadets offers a chance to broaden life experiences – whether that’s challenges and experiences like rowing around the UK, sailing on a tall ship, crewing a yacht around the Scottish islands (most of which is heavily subsidised) or meeting weekly to work together at their unit. It gives them a chance to explore their abilities and test their skills, as they work together as a team. Sea cadets learn a wide range of skills with us, from watersports to leadership, presentation skills, first aid and seamanship skills such as knots, navigation and marine engineering. Our incredible volunteer support offers valuable role models and mentors for young people,and our units provide a sense of family and belonging. We are often a lifeline to young people who are bullied at school, offering stability and security to those in foster care and we are a pathway to meaningful careers and further education for those that struggle at school.
