SSI Job Description


Cadet Force Adult Volunteers

Adult Volunteers are vital for the running of the Army Cadet Force, Royal Air Force Air Cadets, and Sea Cadets. We are always keen to find new adults to help us, both female and male, and no military experience is necessary, only the wish to help in the development of young people.

Army, Air and Sea Cadets are youth organisations offering young people between 12 and 18 the opportunity to have fun, adventure and make friends whilst learning – military skills, shooting, survival techniques, kayaking, rock-climbing, hill walking, mountain biking and much more. They have great summer camps at home and overseas plus the opportunity to gain some very useful qualifications. They also contribute to their local communities by helping with worthwhile projects and by raising money for a wide array of charities.

As an Adult Volunteer in your spare time, enabling Cadets to learn new skills, overcome fears or difficulties and become responsible citizens is incredibly rewarding. Being an Instructor also gives you a chance to develop your own strengths such as leadership skills, team building and confidence – and you can gain vocational qualifications up to Master’s degree level in various management and training courses.

The best person to tell you more are the Cadet Force Adult Volunteers themselves. You can find your local branch and their contact details through the following websites:
