The Havering Fire Cadets gives young people the opportunity to engage with the London Fire Brigade and gain important skills, which could help them with applying for courses and jobs in the future.
Cadets can even work towards a BTEC qualification.
Sue Douglas, the Fire Cadet co-ordinator, said: “Fire Cadets is an exciting youth engagement programme offering young people the opportunity to gain a credible qualification and life skills they can use in the workplace.
“Fire Cadets gives young people the opportunity to enhance key citizenship skills, build confidence and develop transferable skills.”
Members of the group work closely with other uniformed cadet organisations and represent the brigade at events.
Sue is looking for teenagers aged between 14 and 17.
She said: “If you are a young person who is up for a challenge, wants to be part of something new and exciting, someone who can learn new skills like problem solving and working as a team, become a positive role model and achieve what you never thought possible, apply now, spaces are limited!”
