Become a Civilian Volunteer

Are you 18 or older and interested in shaping the future of Canada’s youth while volunteering for a dynamic Program full of exciting experiences? 

If you answer yes to any of the following questions you may have found the volunteer opportunity waiting for you…

  1. Are you 18 or older?
  2. Do you have 3 hours to spare at least once a week?
  3. Do you enjoy working with youth aged 12–19?
  4. Are you interested in outdoor adventures?

Although most our volunteers come from cadet parents, we accept anyone of good moral character who shows interest in helping the youth involved in our program.  Civilian Volunteers (CIVs) report to the officer staff and assist with a variety of tasks at the corps, including (but not limited to) the planning of events and activities, additional adult supervision, and instruction and mentorship to the cadets.

CIVs support authorized cadet activities and shall have successfully completed the reliability screening (which is a systematic process agreed upon by our partners: The Department of National Defence [DND], and the Army Cadet League to confirm that a person can be expected to be reliable and trustworthy to participate in activities in support of authorized cadet activities) via a Police Records Check (PRC) / Vulnerability Sector Screening (VSS) conducted by the League.  You will be required to have a suitability interview with the Commanding Officer and the Army Cadet League, and upon successful completion of the interview, you will then be in possession of an identification card issued by the League, and have signed the CIV Agreement.

If this sounds like an opportunity for you, please attend the corps on a Monday evening during the training year from 7:00pm to 8:00pm, where one of our staff will provide you with the information you need to start the process.
