Cadets and Badgers youth team volunteers 

Ben youth leader with St John AmbulanceBe part of a team that empowers and supports young people

As one of our Cadets or Badgers youth team volunteers, you'll be trained to provide our young people with both life skills and life saving skills, all while having fun!

What you'll get up to

You’ll be volunteering with Badgers (aged 7-10) or Cadets (aged 11-18). You’ll help to support them to care for others, gain new experiences, and learn important life skills, including first aid.

You’ll have the chance to design your own role. This could involve running fun activities, such as outdoor events, summer camps, or providing more ‘behind-the-scenes’ support.

You’ll also have the chance to learn first aid. As well as the opportunity to become a Youth Leader with the support and guidance from a friendly volunteer manager.

‘Volunteering’s taught me so many things that will help with my career – everything from interview skills to writing better emails! I’ve also gained communication, listening and presentation skills. Now I can stand up in front of a group and not shy away. I love empowering young people – it’s inspiring.’

Ben, Youth Leader
