ORGANIZATION: CIVIL AIR PATROL

Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol (US Air Force civilian auxiliary) is looking for volunteers interested in working in the public affairs/media arena - working with social media, photography, various forms of media involvement, and helping to recruit and promote our local squadron and Civil Air Patrol as an organization. NO Public Affairs background necessary and we do not require any military, pilot or aviation experience. Civil Air Patrol provides easy access to and extensive materials to aide in training, mentorship and other support necessary to success in our program.

As a Public Affairs Officer, you would have limited contact with cadets but can pursue other interests as well: Emergency Services, Ground Team, Mission Readiness, Leadership, Professional Development, Public Relations, and many more areas of need and opportunity are there for you. This program is not just a youth organization, our Senior Members advance and promote in the program based on their performance and initiative. Although part of the US Air Forces Total Force, we are a civilian organization and not a feeder for the military.

**CADET PROTECTION IS PARAMOUNT AND STRICTLY ENFORCED. OUR CADETS AND ADULT LEADERS ARE TRAINED AND CIVIL AIR PATROL IS COMMITED TO THE SAFETY OF EVERY MEMBER IN OUR PROGRAM. An FBI background check is required before any involvement with squadron members.

About CIVIL AIR PATROL

Meeting Locale: 4100 E. Main St., Columbus, OH 43213, US

Mission Statement

Supporting America's communities with emergency response, diverse aviation and ground services, youth development, and promotion of air, space and cyber power.

Description

Civil Air Patrol has been at the forefront of community service for six decades - in times of war and peace - its members giving far more than they could hope to receive in return. CAP’s members do this for love of country, respect for their fellow man, and their need to contribute to their communities. CAP performs no warfighting function, it is the benevolent auxiliary of the United States Air Force, performing essential non-combatant missions for the Air Force in time of need; as embodied in our mission statement. This relationship with the uniformed services, and the Air Force in particular, is at the heart of CAP’s existence, as it has been almost since its inception. CAP was founded on 1 December 1941, just six days before Pearl Harbor. Its three-fold mission of Emergency Services, Aerospace Education and the Cadet Program is CAP’s defining triad, dedicated to serving the American people through education, welfare and personal development services. As technological and societal needs change the nature of what CAP is asked to do, it adapts to meet those needs.
