Become a Civilian Volunteer

Not everyone who wants to teach cadets has to an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces. Civilian volunteers complement the knowledge and skill set of the Cadet Instructors Cadre. Adults that desire to get involved can:

  • Assist with organizing and teaching on regular training nights
    Cambridge Army Cadets Pipes and Drums warming up for competition
  • Attend weekend Field Training Exercises and lend assist the staff
  • Act as assistants for the various teams and groups
  • If you have a special skill assist as appropriate
Let the Commanding Officer know if you have special skills. People with experience in first aid, rock-climbing, bushcraft, survival, etc are not always easy to find.

Civilian volunteers are required to undergo much the same screening as Cadet Instructors Cadre Officers.


We are always on the lookout for high-caliber individuals to become volunteers, helping to run the activities that play such an important role in the lives of our young members.  All kinds of people make up our volunteer staff, coming from a range of backgrounds and interests. If you have direct experience working with young people, or any other relevant skills you would be particularly welcome. These aren’t essential though, as we will train and support you at every stage.
