Join as an adult volunteer...
Over 20? Seeking a new challenge? Would you like to develop skills, leadership qualities and gain qualifications too?
At Air Cadets, we constantly assess our past achievements, implement changes to meet the challenges of today and make plans for the future. And a huge part of that planning is you. As the backbone of our organisation, we're always on the look out for high-calibre individuals to become volunteers, helping to run the activites that play such an important role in the lives of our young members.
All kinds of people make up our volunteer staff, coming from a range of backgrounds and interests. Obviously if you have direct experience of working with young people, or any revelant skills such as flying or gliding, you would be particularly welcome. These aren't essential though, as we will train and support you at every stage.
That said, you'll have some personal qualities that are essential, such as pateince, maturity and responsibility along with an understanding of young people and their needs. You needn't be an athlete, but a good level of physical fitness also helps ensure you can keep up with the cadets!
There are different types of adult volunteers in the Air Cadet Organisation (ACO). To find out more about what might suit you, contact the squadron's commanding officer, or visit the Air Cadet's homepage.
