Help Shape the future of our young people

21 June 2017

The Army Cadet Force is seeking energetic volunteers to inspire Northern Irelandís young people at over 60 detachments across the Province.

A youth organisation dating back over 150 years, the Army Cadet Force (ACF) provides amazing opportunities for young people aged 12 to 18 years. It gives young people - from all walks of life - access to fun, friendship, action and adventure, challenging them to learn more, do more and try more. The ACF inspires them to aim high and gives them the skills, values and attitudes to go further in life, no matter what they aim to do.

Many young people miss out on the challenges and adventures that could transform their lives. That’s why the ACF is looking for more volunteer instructors – from all over Northern Ireland – to help give more young people the ‘cadet experience’. It welcomes people from all walks of life who can be strong role models.  You will be teaching young people all sorts of skills from fieldcraft, physical education and adventurous training through to music and first aid. Besides the satisfaction of seeing young people achieve what they never thought possible you’ll be learning new skills, gaining qualifications, growing in confidence, having fun and making new friends.

No previous experience is required and all of the necessary training is provided. So if you are over 18, eager to learn and share your skills and willing and able to give up your time on a regular basis, the ACF would love to hear from you.
