Sea Cadets - Aberdeen is calling for young people to come on board this February to see how being a cadet can make a difference to their lives.
The unit, which meets at Pocra Quay, Aberdeen, is welcoming new cadets as part of Sea Cadets’ national campaign, #NeverOrdinary, which runs throughout the month and aims to raise awareness of what the charity can offer.
At Aberdeen, young people aged between 10 and 17 can enjoy the exciting activities we offer: sailing, rowing & powerboating , giving you self-belief and boosting your CV.
In a recent survey, 94% of parents said they felt their child’s self-confidence, motivation and team-work had “greatly improved” at Sea Cadets. Being a sea cadet can also help young people at school, as well as in later life, whatever they positive difference to their lives. It’s also a great way to make new friends.
