Volunteer – You Can Make a Difference

Without volunteers, there would be no Civil Air Patrol. When you become a Civil Air Patrol volunteer, you join a family of citizens with a shared desire to give back to communities; helping others. Often in return, volunteers find fulfillment, satisfaction, a sense of belonging, and pride.

We always have a variety of opportunities available from administrative to technical to meet your talents, interests and availability. Our goal is to match you with an opportunity that best suits you. Some opportunities are in continuous demand and listed below. In exchange, we’ll provide you the training you need, opportunities to apply your skills, and the meaningful experiences giving back to communities throughout Nebraska.
