Ayr Sea Cadets

Charity registered in Scotland SC030257

At Ayr we aim to give young people an experience that will help them grow into the person they want to be in a safe and friendly environment. Through various activities and adventures, we learn teamwork, respect, loyalty, self-confidence, commitment, self-discipline, honesty and how to be the best version of ourselves.

We offer a range of different activities from sailing, windsurfing and powerboating - to rock climbing, camping, and music - plus, so much more! At Ayr you are also able to gain different qualifications that you can take with you once you leave Sea Cadets!

Current opportunity

Established in 1856 the Sea Cadets were created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the unit building. Today, 14,000 young people based in 400 units in towns, cities and ports across the UK are challenging themselves and developing new skills, like sailing, boating and rock climbing - supported by 9,000 volunteers. At Ayr, we love helping young people launch well in today’s world. Watching cadets grow into better versions of themselves is what makes volunteering for this charity so special. Volunteering with Sea Cadets has so many benefits. Including giving back to the community, helping young people grow into adults and gaining qualifications to teach different courses we have to offer. We’re always looking for people to join us! Whether it’s becoming a trained instructor or just lending a helping hand, your help is always welcome! You don’t need to have a background in the navy or in water sports, you just need to have a positive attitude! Looking for a new adventure in 2023? Ayr Sea Cadets is actively recruiting new Sea Cadets (Aged 10-18) as well as new adult volunteers (18+). We have a hugely exciting 2023 planned, why not become part of it?
