Over 20? Seeking a new challenge? Would you like to develop skills, leadership qualities and gain qualifications too? As the backbone of our organisation we're always on the look out for high-calibre individuals to become volunteers and supplement our varied and motivated staff team, helping to run the activities and instruct in key subject areas that play such an important role in the lives of our young members. Could this be you?


All kinds of people make up our volunteer staff, coming from a range of backgrounds and interests. If you have direct experience of working with young people, or any relevant skills such as flying or gliding, then you would be particularly welcome. These aren't essential though, as we are looking for people that are willing to get involved and give anything a try, and we will train and support you at every stage. That said, you'll have some personal qualities that are essential, such as patience, 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 to ensure you can keep up with the cadets!
