How can I help The Cavaliers?
The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps has a proud and longstanding tradition of volunteer support from our friends, fans, family, and alumni. Without this generous support, The Cavaliers would not be able to focus on providing the life-changing experiences and quality education that have been the fabric of this corps for more than 60 years.
Volunteering can work with anyone's schedule, whether you're able to donate hours, days, weeks, or a month of your time. You don't have to be an expert, but we ask that our volunteers be physically able with a positive attitude, at least 21 years of age, and able to dedicate a minimum of four (4) hours of your time.
NOTE: If you have a specialized skill set not listed below, please contact us and we'll find a way to utilize your skills as a volunteer. There are many tasks that need to be accomplished each day...we will find the right opportunity for you!
When/where are volunteers needed?
Check out The Cavaliers' 2017 tour schedule to see where the Green Machine will be traveling this upcoming summer. Volunteer support is needed each day in all the areas outlined below (and more).
