The world moves so fast today, and the change can be exhilarating and life-opening, but also terrifying, especially for young people with less back-up at home.
Sea Cadets has a tangible, lasting and positive impact on young people. Almost half our groups work in economically challenged areas and 31% of our cadets are drawn from the poorest 25% in the UK. The difference we make to the lives of our cadets carries with them throughout all aspects of their lives.
At Sea Cadets young people get comfortable with meeting people from different places and backgrounds, 92% of cadets say they now work better with others. They also pick up qualifications which boost their CVs and the life-skills they learn helps set them up for the future. Last year cadets earned more than 45,000 qualifications, including 2,933 BTEC level 1 awards and parents see qualifications as one of the top three benefits of their child joining Sea Cadets.
Your money helps us impact more young people in hard to reach areas, helping them to launch well in life.
