Emergency Services Cadets

The PCYC Queensland Emergency Services Cadets program is delivered in partnership with PCYC Queensland and Queensland’s emergency services, thanks to the support of Queensland Fire and Emergency Services.

The program is offered to young people aged 12 to 17 and operates out of an emergency service facility within a community under the leadership and guidance of volunteer adult leaders and mentoring emergency services personnel.  Currently there are 17 unit locations operating.

Cadets learn a diverse range of emergency service skills, develop their leadership potential and are encouraged to explore a career pathway or ongoing volunteering with emergency services; as the program has a focus on “building the next generation of emergency service volunteers”.
