Organisers of St John Ambulance’s Cadet Unit in Cranleigh are appealing for people to volunteer as youth leaders, to support young people wanting to become the next generation of life savers.
St John Ambulance believes every young person should have the opportunity to learn basic life saving skills in a fun, safe and supportive environment. Cadets, who are aged from 10 to 17 years old, learn a huge range of important life skills, including first aid, as they work towards their Grand Prior Award – the highest award a Cadet can achieve.
Anyone interested in volunteering should be prepared to give a minimum of two hours a week. All training, including a first aid qualification, essential skills for youth work and safeguarding children, will be provided by St John Ambulance. The role may be suitable for someone who is seeking a career in youth work.
