ORGANIZATION: Sheboygan Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol

The Sheboygan Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol is looking for volunteers for a number of positions, including administration, logistics, emergency services, STEM education and youth mentoring. Special opportunities for veterans as well as a cadet program for youth (12+).

Though Civil Air Patrol is known for its flying missions, CAP adults members, known as Senior Members, do so much more than just fly.

CAP adult members come from all walks of life including electricians, lawyers, educators, retail workers, clergy, truck drivers, retirees. Really just about any career or background can be found in the ranks of the CAP adult membership.

Adult members help out at the squadron with day-to-day operations like managing the finances or keeping inventory of equipment. In emergency services and operations, members may help with communications, transportation of goods, taking photos or helping distribute water and food. CAP has more than 23,000 youth in a its Cadet Program. Adult members help in all aspects of the cadet program, so it's a great opportunity if you want to be a positive influence in a young person's life.

There are many opportunities to serve as a volunteer in Civil Air Patrol. Reach out to us to find out how you can help:

About Us:

Since Civil Air Patrol’s formation during the earliest days of World War II, this vigilant organization of citizen Airmen has been committed to service to America. Founded o n Dec. 1, 1941, to mobilize the nation's civilian aviation resources for national defense service , CAP has evolved into a premier public service organization that still carries out emergency service missions when needed - in the air and on the ground.

As a Total Force partner and auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, Civil Air Patrol is there to search for and find the lost, provide comfort in times of disaster and work to keep the homeland safe. Its 56,000 members selflessly devote their time, energy, and expertise toward the well-being of their communities, while also promoting aviation and related fields through aerospace/STEM education and helping shape future leaders through CAP’s cadet program. Civil Air Patrol’s missions for America are many, and today’s adults and cadets perform their duties with the same vigilance as its founding members - preserving CAP’s 80-year legacy of service while maintaining its commitment to nearly 1,500 communities nationwide.
