Young people

We believe that every young person should have the opportunity to learn basic life saving skills.

St John Ambulance offers all young people the opportunity to participate in our youth groups, whether you’re aged five or 25.

If you're aged between five and 10, you can join Badgers. Learn first aid, have fun and you could even become a Super Badger!

10 to 17 years old can become Cadets. You’ll get the best first aid training, and a wide choice of other activities. You'll never be stuck for something to do.

And if you’re in higher education, you can join LINKS.

If you're older, but you have what it takes to inspire young people, we have vacancies for youth leaders.
