Bexhill Youth Project (BYP) Youth Worker

Bexhill Youth Project is for young people aged 11-18 who want to have fun, make friends and learn new skills.

The BYP encourages Young people to speak up and have their voices heard about future plans and opportunities in the local area.

Youth Group sessions run on Monday and Wednesdays between 5-7pm at the Polgrove Football Ground.

If you would like to support with the planning and delivery of the Youth Group sessions please contact Sara at sheeson@fsncharity.co.uk / 01424 377115 or see https://www.fsncharity.co.uk/projects/bexhill-youth-project for more information.

The Royal Air Force Air Cadets

Who Are We –  The Royal Air Force Air Cadets are a nationwide youth organisation with the sole purpose of providing “The Next Generation”, those between the ages of 12(Year8) and 18 with life-changing skills, and unprecedented fun that they couldn’t get anywhere else.

What’s involved – Each unit or Squadron has its own Civilian Committee who are the backbone of what we do. The committee is responsible for controlling and raising all monetary funds that are needed for us to offer the cadet experience that we do. Along with this they actively ensure that those who can’t necessarily afford the opportunities we offer don’t go without!

There is next to no limit in how we can raise funds in the past we have used grants, boot fairs, open days and stalls at local community events. Another big part is bringing about change to the unit, we welcome new ideas and fresh outlooks to move us forward with the times and grow to be well renowned and respected.

Commitment can be as much or as little as the individual needs. All we ask is that you can be available for a handful of meetings a year either in person or virtually. But most people find it incredibly easy to commit to more than 4 times a year without knowing they have done so!

Benefits to you – After completing a basic paperwork application there are many benefits from being involved with the local community and the Royal Air Force Air Cadets. By helping to govern and manage a squadron well, the potential to grow supporting finances is enhanced and with that comes the satisfaction of knowing that you are contributing positively to the development of young people in your area and thereby helping society in general. On top of this, the potential to meet and work with other members of your local community and grow long-lasting friendships is incredibly common and hugely encouraged.
