Volunteers Wanted to join the Sea Cadets – Instructors and Unit Management Team Members

Sea Cadet Units across Scotland are looking for enthusiastic people to join their teams which aim to give young people the best possible head start in life.

What type of volunteering suits you?

Sea Cadet Instructors:
If you love being out on the water, why not share your skills with young people in your local area? Spend a few hours a week showing young people how to sail, windsurf, kayak, row or canoe at a local Sea Cadet unit.
Don’t be put off if you haven’t got any watersport qualifications, all you need is lots of enthusiasm. We are happy to hear from anyone who thinks they may have a contribution to make to the development of youngsters. We’ll provide you with all the equipment, training and the opportunity to gain boating qualifications. Other training and qualifications include communications, marine engineering and catering.

Sea Cadet Unit Management Team:
If you have skills in leadership, business or administration and would like to oversee a unit’s operation, why not join a unit’s management team?
You can help manage the finances and budgets, help fundraise for the unit, organise events, write press releases for the local media or build corporate relationships with local businesses.

The commitment can vary but is generally 1 – 2 evenings per week plus an occasional day at the weekend. The minimum commitment is for one night a week.

There is a compulsory Adult Induction Course that includes child protection, and PVG clearance is required.

You can find more information at https://www.sea-cadets.org/ and on Facebook: Sea Cadets Northern Area.

If you are interested and can spare some time but would like information on specific units and any other general information, then please contact: –
