Objectives

The world moves so fast today, and the change can be exhilarating and life-opening, but also terrifying, especially for young people with less back-up at home.

Opportunities are there, but standing out from everyone else chasing them means having the very things that makes meeting any sea cadet memorable, even at the young age of 15 or 16.

Confidence. Composure. Resilience. Knowing how to listen, speak and present yourself in new situations. Leadership. Motivation. Organisation. Bounce.

Sea Cadets can give so much to young people struggling. The widening gap between rich and poor is seeing huge numbers of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds being shut out of opportunities because they cost too much. And 1 in 5 teenagers are now experiencing mental health problems like anxiety and clinical depression.

Activities

Young people develop the confidence at Sea Cadets to help set them up to enjoy life and get through challenges

They feel confident in new situations

They’re able to ask for and get the information they need

They come across well when meeting new people – in training, at uni or when going for a job

Sea Cadets develop great habits and thinking that last a lifetime

They often feel clearer about to get what they want from life

They’re better equipped for making a good impression in interviews because they learn how to speak confidently and clearly in front of others

Stepping up when a leader’s needed becomes less scary

Sea Cadets learn how to support people who are less experienced

This can help with captaining a sports team, getting elected to do something they feel passionately about, or standing out in that precious first job interview
