Aviation: Youth Movements
House of Lords

The RAF, and the Air Cadet Organisation in particular, engage with young people on a number of levels and are committed to their development. Air Cadets maintain a visible uniformed presence at air shows and other local events with display stands to inform the public of the activities cadets undertake. Additionally, the Air Cadet Organisation has its own websites and magazine with details of how to join and is currently supporting the Mayor of London's "You Matter" initiative, which offers opportunities for young people to join volunteer uniformed cadet organisations across London.
Although the Air Scouts and Air League are civilian bodies, the RAF works closely with them to nurture and support an interest in aviation amongst young people through a network of Air Cadet Liaison Officers based at each of its stations.
