Step Up to Serve, a brand new campaign launched today by HRH, The Prince of Wales and all three political parties, pledges to increase opportunities for young people in their local community to improve their sense of belonging, emotional wellbeing, educational outcomes and career prospects.
As part of this campaign Youth United, a network of voluntary youth organisations, is pledging to offer 40,000 places for young people to join Sea Cadets, and other youth groups including Air and Army Cadets, Scouts and GirlGuiding UK.
This pledge will enable young people to join Sea Cadets to give them the best possible head start in life. Sea Cadets and other youth organisations are working together to encourage young people, particularly in disadvantaged communities, to learn new life skills such as communication, team work and problem solving.
