SCARBOROUGH Army Cadet Force (ACF) is looking for more adults to volunteer to help meet increased demand.
With more cadets signing up the association’s adult instructors are struggling to cope – there are currently 1,600 cadets across the region.
Major Steve Hawley, the cadet executive officer for the Scarborough detachment, said: “Being an adult instructor for the cadets is enormously rewarding, and also a great privilege.
“Besides having the opportunity to play a leading role in the development of young people, it’s also a terrific way to take part in a range of exciting military orientated pursuits – from training weekends leading up to summer camp holidays, to white-water rafting days out.
“The ACF is one of the most prestigious youth organisations in the world. Its popularity means we need more adult instructors to lead the cadets and deliver the quality of experiences, adventures and community projects – including the Duke of Edinburgh award – which our cadets enjoy.
“You don’t need any military experience to become an instructor and you can even gain qualifications that will help you in your workplace.
“We would love to hear from people who are willing to offer their time and enthusiasm to join our ranks as an Adult Instructor.”
The Scarborough cadet detachment is one of 15 across North Yorkshire urgently needing support.
