Youth teams

Can you inspire the next generation of life savers?

Youth teams

Young people join St John Ambulance either as Badgers or Cadets, where they learn first aid, make new friends and take part in a range of fun activities.

As part of a youth team you'll empower young people to care for others by learning first aid. Together, our youth teams support young people to gain new life skills, experiences and qualifications along the way. By delivering our programme you'll encourage and inspire young people from all walks of life to develop their potential.

We make sure you're given all the support you need to excel! You'll have the chance to learn first aid and take on more advanced roles with training, all while being fully supported by the rest of your team. We offer the opportunity for you to volunteer flexibilty and make a readl difference to your community.

‘Volunteering’s taught me so many things that will help with my career – everything from interview skills to writing better emails! I’ve also gained communication, listening and presentation skills. Now I can stand up in front of a group and not shy away. I love empowering young people – it’s inspiring.’ – Ben, Youth Leader
