Twenty young people from the Catterick Garrison Army Cadet Force visited 4th Infantry Brigade and Headquarters North East where they participated in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), and team-building activities.
The activities allow young people to work together in small teams, practice effective communication, go through problem solving scenarios’ and allow the older cadets to practice leadership roles.
The cadets are currently on half term where most of them attend Risedale School within the Garrison.
The activities bring out the sort of skills all employers look for within young people, that working together, communicating with each other getting the job done, providing young people with real life skills.
Youth engagement officer Sergeant Major Mark Hill said: “It’s great to be able to inspire and motivate young people from within our community, our activities also bring out young people’s character building resilience within our youth.”
The activities tied in with a visit from General Officer Commanding Regional Command, Major General Duncan Capps who spoke with the group of Cadets and presented a couple of awards, and promotions.
