' Being a St John Ambulance Cadet has made me more confident and taught me that, no matter what, if I put my mind to something I can achieve it. It has allowed me to become a young woman who is ready to try anything and who wants to succeed. ' - Shannon Dean
Young people aged 10-17 can join one of our Cadet units, which operate throughout England. These are a great way for teens and young people to take part in volunteer work and learn valuable life skills.
As a Cadet, you'll take part in a full and interactive programme, working towards your Grand Prior Award and volunteering at events. Ferndown Cadets meet every Tuesday (7:00 - 8:30 term time only).
- learn first aid skills
- volunteer within your community by providing first aid cover at public events, such as football matches and music festivals
- learn leadership and public speaking skills by teaching first aid to other young people
- spend time on weekend residential camps packed with activities, and have the opportunity to compete in international first aid competitions
