Cadets

NSW SES Secondary Schools Cadet Program is sponsored by Origin. Origin is committed to enlisting the next generation of volunteers by encouraging young Australians to get involved in the NSW SES through the Cadet Program or by joining a local NSW SES Unit directly from the age of 16.

The aim of the Cadet Program for Secondary Schools is to provide students with the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to achieve an understanding of the NSW State Emergency Service and its role in the community. 

The specific goals of the program are:

  • To provide progressive, interesting and challenging training that encourages the development of positive personal and team characteristics among participants
  • To encourage the idea of achieving success in life through the spirit of service to Australia and commitment within the local community
  • To provide an understanding of the NSW State Emergency Service and other Emergency Service agencies
