Northern Ireland Army Cadets Radio Campaign

Looking for something exciting to do in your spare time? The Army Cadet Force (ACF) is one of the biggest and best youth organisations in Northern Ireland with around 1,950 cadets in 68 locations across the province. When it comes to action, excitement and adventure, the Army Cadets is hard to beat.

As a cadet, or an adult volunteer, you’ll get the chance to experience a range of fun, challenging activities that you can’t find elsewhere.

 

Aged 12 - 17? Join us as a cadet and you’ll spend your spare time taking part in adventurous activities and your favourite sports as well as making new friends and experiencing new opportunities that will help you to become more independent, confident and able to step up to any challenge.

 

Aged 18 or over? Join as an adult volunteer and we’ll give you all the training you need to make a real difference to young people in your community. As well as taking part in a range of exciting activities, you’ll also get the chance to gain new qualifications and boost your leadership skills and your CV.

So if you can give up one or two evenings a week and you're ready for the adventure of a lifetime, this could be exactly what you're looking for!

Register your interest today and your nearest ACF detachment will then be in touch for an informal chat. Alternatively, find a detachment near you.
