There are over 4,400 cadets in Wales who enjoy fun with friends at more than 200 unit locations spanning the length and breadth of the country.
They grow through life changing experiences and gain nationally recognised qualifications, such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, St John’s Ambulance First Aid and BTEC awards.
Through exciting activities and adventurous training, cadets from all walks of life gain new personal and practical skills to use in everyday life, which often takes them to new places.
Each cadet unit is a part of wider national voluntary youth organisation sponsored by the Ministry of Defence (MoD). Click on the links below to find out more.
Cadet organisations combine youth work with military-themed training and community-based activities. They improve the health of cadets through a variety of outdoor activities and sport. Young people can be a part of the cadets from the age of 12-19 years old depending on the organisation they join.
