A Moray charity have issued a call for more volunteers to help their organisation grow stronger and help out more local youngsters.
Moray Sea Cadets offer youngsters the chance to take part in numerous nautical activities and is a nationally recognised youth charity.
Now, they are looking for instructors and managers to volunteer their time and offer their knowledge to willing learners.
Kelly Giblin, a Sea Cadets development worker described what they are looking for in an instructor.
She said: “Being a volunteer instructor will give you the chance for personal development, while also passing on your knowledge and life experience to the younger people.
“Although a military, teaching or professional background would help, if you have a good level of enthusiasm, a passion for development, and an understanding of working with young people from all backgrounds, we’d love to hear from you.”
The Sea Cadets is a national youth charity that promotes the tradition, values and ethos of the Royal Navy.
It is open to kids and teenagers from the ages of ten to 18, with some youngsters using the service as a springboard to a career in the service.
Respect, self-discipline and naval traditions are taught through a series of nautical activities, such as rowing, canoeing and windsurfing.
Ms Giblin is keen for the volunteer drive to be successful, so that more young people in Moray can be supported.
She added: “Hopefully, enthusiastic people will see our call for help and answer it to give young people the best possible head start in life through nautical adventure and fun.”
Based in Findhorn, the Moray Sea Cadets take part in numerous activities including yacht sailing and competing in rowing regattas.
Potential volunteers should email David Sprott at firstname.lastname@example.org, with instructors needing to commit three to four hours a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and management volunteers a maximum of two hours on a Wednesday.
