TYPES OF VOLUNTEERS
SPRING TRAINING VOLUNTEERS
Spring training volunteers will primarily work in food service and uniform operations as the corps prepares for the season. The corps is stationary at this time. We also need local volunteers who can assist with errands. A background check is required.

TOURING VOLUNTEERS
Touring volunteers are needed to assist with food service, merchandise operations, uniform maintenance, and driving (CDL and non-CDL). Touring volunteers are provided meals, passes to the shows, and travel on a bus. You will sleep either on the bus or in classroom facilities on the road. No specific skills are required, but you need to bring a positive attitude and strong work ethic. The work is hard and non-stop, but very rewarding. A background check is required.

Training will be provided to food service volunteers including standards for food preparation and hygiene as well as teach you what you need to know in order to assist in the preparation and service of our meal schedule. You will be asked to help with meal prep, service, clean-up, and inventory organization/restocking.

Merchandising volunteers would assist the Merchandise Manager with all areas of the operation: set-up, sales, and breakdown.  You may also share in the driving responsibilities, often traveling overnight. All training provided by the Merchandise Manager.

Drivers are required to drive overnight, meaning you will need to adjust your sleep schedule appropriately. The driver needs to assure the vehicle is fueled and maintained properly, and follow all safety protocols. A clean driving record is required in order to be placed on our insurance policy.

ON-SITE VOLUNTEERS
On-site volunteers assist when the corps comes to their town (1-2 days). This often includes trips to/from the airport, helping source groceries, assisting with merchandise operations at show sites, making medical runs, washing uniforms, and serving a meal or two. This is a great way to assist the corps with a minimal time commitment.

EVENT VOLUNTEERS
Forward Performing Arts will sponsor the Drums on Parade, Drums on the Chippewa, and the Whitewater Classic DCI events. Volunteers are needed for show-day operations including working in the ticket booth, ticket entrance, ushers, guest services, judge liaisons, and stadium setup/cleanup. Volunteers are provided entrance to the event, but keep in mind that you may not see much of the actual performances. 


AREAS WE NEED HELP
FOOD SERVICE 
You will be working alongside the Food Operations Manager and a team of other volunteers to help feed the corps three to four times each day. Little to no experience is required. Training will be provided to review the standards for food preparation and hygiene as well as teach you what you need to know in order to assist in the preparation and service of our meal schedule. You will be asked to help with meal prep, clean-up, and inventory organization/restocking. A positive attitude is a must as you will be interacting with each member of the corps and staff on a daily basis.

UNIFORM MAINTENANCE
This team is responsible for making the corps look great. Sewing skills are preferred, but not required. The sewing team will make adjustments and basic repairs to the uniform, guard costume, and flags. As well, this team routinely launders the uniforms on a rotation basis.

MERCHANDISE OPERATIONS
There are three ways to help with the merchandise team, the “face of the corps”.  Merchandise volunteers will have the opportunity to watch the Scouts’ and a few other performances. 

1. Touring volunteer: You would travel with the merchandise team to help with set-up, sales, and breakdown. The merchandise volunteers may travel with the corps or with the merchandise vehicle, depending on the current needs. 

2. On-site sales: You would meet the merchandise team at the show site and assist with set-up, sales, and breakdown. Assistance is most needed at regionals as well as at shows with potentially high sales such as our home shows (Madison, Whitewater, and Eau Claire)

3. Driver: You would share driving responsibilities with the merchandise manager, often traveling at night. Merchandise drivers should feel comfortable driving a 14 foot trailer (or feel confident learning how). 

NON-CDL DRIVER
We are in need of drivers for our merchandise operations (24′ RV towing a 22′ trailer), our 26' box truck (props), and our lead vehicle (van pulling 15' trailer). A CDL is not required, but you do need to be experienced in driving larger size vehicles and towing trailers. The driver is required to drive overnight, meaning you will need to adjust your sleep schedule appropriately. The driver needs to assure the vehicle is fueled and maintained properly, hook & unhook the trailer multiple times a day, and follow all safety protocols. A clean driving record is required in order to be placed on our insurance policy.
