MALTA CADETS CORPS
Empowering the Next Generation
The cadets meet regularly every Saturday between 5 and 7 pm. In these meetings several activities are undertaken such as:
First aid training,
Out door life,
etc to name a few.
We are committed to educate our young in environmental awareness. As part of our support to the local community, we organise cleanups from time to time
Throughout the year, the cadets take part in several sports. We do abseiling, rope walks, hikes, outdoor cooking, ziplines, scuba diving, face painting etc
Note: for some of the activities you must be 16 years old
Supported by ERSASMUS Plus, every year we do take part in international youth changes. We do act as sending organisation ( ie sending our youths abroad) or hoisting, ie receiving youths from abroad)
Casualty simulation is the creation of simulated casualties for use in military and civilian medical training scenarios. ... Sometimes casualty simulation is referred to as moulage. The word moulage comes from the French language meaning to shape or mold. Moulage usually refers to three-dimensional makeup like prosthetics. This is done to enhance our first aid training and services.
We offer a wide range of programs, skills and training opportunities during our weekly meetings. Our Educational Workshops is centered on instilling strong values into our youth and provides a space for them to expand their mind while meeting new and interesting individuals.
Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Malta
The Cadets take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award which is the world’s leading youth achievement award, bringing together practical experiences and life skills to create committed global citizens and equipping young people for life. Since it was founded by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in 1956, over eight million people have participated in the Award in over 140 countries and territories. Every day 548 young people across the world achieve an Award.The Award is open to all young people regardless of their background and circumstances. It is delivered around the world by schools, colleges, universities, employers, social clubs, uniformed and non-uniformed youth organisations, young offenders’ institutions, religious organisations, sports clubs, and a whole host of other civic organisations. Recent Award projects around the world have focused on involving young offenders, street children and former child soldiers. The impact of the Award on these and many more young people is extraordinary: it transforms their lives.
We do 2 camps each year under canvas. Since 2000, we have contributed to the development of children in Malta through our wide range of programs. Outdoor life and camping are two of our educational workshops that are centered on instilling strong values into our youth and provides a space for them to expand their mind while meeting new and interesting individuals. Its a way that the youngsters learn life skills and actively become better citizens
In order to widen our knowledge, from time to time, we do attend international meetings, conferences and trainings.
