More than 2,500 adults currently volunteer with the Sea Cadet Corps, Army Cadet Force and the RAF Air Cadets, learning new skills and meeting new people at the same time as leading and inspiring young people.
Cadet Force Adult Volunteers regularly report high satisfaction levels in their ability to help develop young people, develop their own interpersonal skills and improve their career prospects through nationally-recognised qualifications.
Tom Mathew, Deputy Chief Executive (Cadets and Youth) at Lowland RFCA said:
“Together the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets and RAF Air Cadets are among the largest and most successful youth organisations in the country. Around 2,500 committed and enthusiastic adults already volunteer with the Cadet Organisations in Scotland, but we’re always on the look-out for more. As we start the new year there’s never been a better time to become an adult volunteer.
“The Cadets couldn’t do what they do without the Adult Volunteers. No previous experience of the Armed Forces is required as the Cadet Organisations provide all training – all you need is an interest in volunteering to work with highly-motivated young people. So if you want to do something different with your free time, while making a difference to the lives of young people, becoming a Cadet Force Adult Volunteer could be exactly what you are looking for.”
