Sea Cadets is delighted to launch the official film for #NeverOrdinary.
The campaign show young people how Sea Cadets can help them become resilient and confident, through 400 community units across the UK. These units deliver adventure on the water and a much-needed support network, which, in the short-term, can improve confidence, motivation and skills. In the longer-term, it can impact on young people’s life chances through the qualifications they gain and experiences they have, helping them to develop into teenagers who can cope with today’s complex and often overwhelming world.
At Sea Cadets, young people aged between 10 and 17 can enjoy land-based and water-based adventure such as sailing, rowing, kayaking, first-aid training, rock-climbing and drill, as well as earn nationally recognised qualifications, sail offshore, and travel abroad on an international exchange programme. In a recent survey, 94% of parents said they felt their child’s self-confidence, motivation and team-working had “greatly improved” at Sea Cadets.
Volunteers, meanwhile, can earn qualifications while helping young people to develop and flourish. There are lots of roles to match different professions, such as helping manage finances and budgets, fundraising for the unit, organising events and building corporate relationships with local businesses. Alternatively, you could show cadets how to sail, powerboat, kayak, windsurf, play football or learn first aid. All volunteers will receive an induction and will be given training and support.
