Parents as Volunteers

Cadet Sponsor Members

CAP can always use more adult volunteers. If you are willing to serve occasionally as a chaperone or driver, consider joining as a Cadet Sponsor Member. CSMs pay a reduced rate of national dues and are exempt from local dues. To ensure they understand CAP missions and their role in supporting cadets, CSMs complete the Level I Orientation Course, and for safety are screened and trained per our cadet protection standards. For a uniform, CSMs may wear a distinctive CAP uniform such as a special CAP polo shirt, or opt to remain in appropriate civilian attire.

Parents' Committee Volunteers

Parents can support the cadets in their local squadron without officially joining CAP by serving on a parents' committee. Some ways parents can help include:

  • asking area businesses to make financial or in-kind donations 

  • organizing a carpool system 

  • planning an awards night or pot luck dinner  

  • helping the squadron connect with local civic groups 

  • serving as a guest speaker 

  • spreading the news about CAP and helping recruit new members.

Next Step:  Tell local leaders you're willing to help in one or more of the areas listed above. 

Officers / Senior Members

Parents who are interested in participating more fully in CAP's missions should consider joining as a Senior Member.
