Adult Volunteer

We help equip teenagers with all the things they need to cope with and enjoy the big and changing world they’re going into. As an adult volunteer with the sea cadets you will be required to undertake regulatory courses and there are plenty of opportunities to expand on other life skills: first aid, sailing, kayaking, rock climbing, rowing, power boating, communications, marine engineering etc. Female preferred.
