The world is changing
It’s changing in good ways. At Sea Cadets you’ll see teenagers who cycle miles to us because they can’t afford the bus fare, greeting their friend dropped off in a new car, and young people of all races and religions, of all abilities, chatting together, striving together, and cheering each other on.
But the world is also changing in tough ways. And too many young people are going into an adult world under-equipped with the resilience, self-belief and social confidence they need to make a decent life for themselves. Sea Cadets has the skills to change this.
More than a youth club
Many teenagers arrive at Sea Cadets excited at the prospect of all the adventures and activities they can have with us. And they’re brilliant fun. But quickly they see the depth of what they can gain here for their future and they grab it with both hands!
You can literally see the difference Sea Cadets can make. In how they hold themselves, welcome new people, and support each other. How they listen better in school, aren’t offended by constructive feedback, and get on with teachers.
Sea Cadets leaves us like this:
- Feeling more in charge of themselves
- A leader people want to follow
- Comfortable speaking to anyone
- A brilliant team player
- Skilled, with qualifications to prove it
- With positive habits and thinking
