Help Grow Today's Youth as Tomorrow's Aerospace Leaders (Guntersville) Mtn Lakes Composite Sqn
ORGANIZATION: Civil Air Patrol Alabama Wing
Please visit the new page to apply.
We need caring, dedicated volunteers to mentor, guide, and train our cadets, ages 12-21, in a wide range of transferable skills such as: the ability to command tasks; make decisions; plan and organize tasks and work as an effective team player as well as independently, and many other skills young people often don't have the opportunity to learn, including STEM, aerospace and aviation career fields. These skills will equip cadets for life and give YOU the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young people where you live AND make a difference in your community and the state.
Additionally, as a volunteer with the CAP, you can participate in Search and Rescue missions, training exercises, and disaster relief efforts as part of the Auxiliary to the United States Air Force (USAF). If that isn't your thing, we also have opportunities. (See other VolunteerMatch Volunteer Opportunities Mountain Lakes)
If you’re up for the task, CAP offers ordinary citizens stimulating training opportunities, few experience outside. Mountain Lakes Composite Squadron meets each Monday 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Marshall County EMA, 3550 Creek Path Road, Guntersville, AL 35976.
We invite and welcome you to be our guest for an evening at one of our weekly squadron meetings. When you arrive, you will get a chance to observe and meet some of our members who will discuss the organization and provide you with additional information and accompany you for the evening to answer any questions you might have about the Civil Air Patrol.

Established in 1941, Civil Air Patrol is the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force and as such is a member of its Total Force. In its auxiliary role, CAP operates a fleet of 555 single-engine aircraft and 2,250 small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) and performs about 90% of all search and rescue operations within the contiguous United States as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center. Often using innovative cellphone forensics and radar analysis software, CAP was credited by the AFRCC with saving 108 lives last year. CAP’s 56,000 members also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies. As a nonprofit organization, CAP plays a leading role in aerospace education using national academic standards-based STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education resources. Members also serve as mentors to over 23,000 young people participating in CAP’s Cadet Programs.
