Youth programmes

'With St John Ambulance I have achieved so much.  It’s made me a more motivated person. It’s taught me to aim high.' – Rebecca Cruxton

Our youth programmes give young people the opportunity to learn first aid alongside other important life skills. They operate throughout England.

Badgers (Ages 7-10) 

Our fun and adventurous Badger Setts are packed with activities for children so they can learn important life skills in an exciting and safe environment.

Cadets (Ages 10-17) 

At Cadets it's all about fun, community and developing your skills. You can learn first aid, earn your Grand Prior Award and volunteer within your community.

Youth projects: RISE (Ages 14-25) 

RISE is a community programme aimed at training young people who are not in employment, education or training (NEETs).
