Volunteers: Our True Heroes

Volunteers are essential to Cascade's success. Not only do they take part in enriching the lives of the young people that participate, but you will be part of a legacy that goes back for more than half a century!

The time commitment is based on your availability. We take volunteers that are able to help by sharing a few hours at a camp, and even for parts, if not all, of the summer tour!

Volunteer Opportunities Right Now!

Kitchen

Our mobile kitchen runs smoothly with volunteers like you!  No experience necessary.
We need volunteers for our weekend camps, training camp, as well as our National Tour.  Our mobile kitchen prepares and cooks 800 meals per day for our very hungry members and staff.

 

Sewing

Sewing Crew volunteers help with uniform measurements, fittings, alterations, garment bags, production and mending. On tour, volunteer crew handles all uniform alterations, repairs and maintenance on a daily basis.

Driving

Driving is a critical part of supporting the Seattle Cascades. The class A commercial trucks and other support vehicles carry all of the members’ performance equipment, show props, as well as food supplies and cooking equipment.  You would be paired with a veteran volunteer driver, and you will often be part of a convoy of support vehicles.  A valid driver’s license for the type of equipment you are trained on is all that is required.  We travel in class A commercial tractors, class A motor homes, and a range of class C passenger vans and truck/trailer combinations.

Health & Wellness

The medical volunteer on shift would provide on-site early medical assessment of injuries/complaints as well as minor first aid care and spot checks of the members, staff, and volunteers as needed. They would call emergency medical help as needed and help coordinate transportation to a local hospital or urgent care clinic as the need arises. Additionally, a medical person is needed for each week of the nationwide tour. For more information, contact volunteer@seattlecascades.org
