Objectives

The aim of Sea Cadets is to give young people aged 10 to 18 the best possible head start in life through nautical adventure and fun, based on the customs and traditions of the Royal Navy.

Our volunteers work, both directly with young people and behind the scenes, to help make a positive difference to teenagers who are often struggling in today’s world and their communities.

Our immediate outcomes for young people within the Sea Cadets include improved life skills such as leadership, communication and citizenship, we also offer internally and externally accredited qualifications. Our long-term benefits for young people are far reaching - attendance and engagement in school, improved post 16 destinations, long-term wellbeing, reduced risky behaviour and increased participation in communities.

At Bridge of Don Sea Cadets and Royal Marines Cadets, we have strong community links and we pride ourselves on our community engagement. We are a long-established Sea Cadet unit, we are looking to increase our volunteer numbers so that we can continue to have a positive impact on the young people within our community.

Activities

Our volunteers work with cadets and report to the Commanding Officer to deliver safe, fun and engaging training. We have a great team of instructional staff, some are ‘seasoned’ and have been in the organisation for a number of years, but some are new to the organisation and working their way through their own personal development. There are plenty of opportunities for self-development and to gain transferable qualifications on and off the water.
