Volunteer With Us
We could not exist without the tireless effort of our many volunteers – people just like you. Team up with other friends, fans, and alumni to help support the Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps (BK DBC), Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble (BKPE), and other Ascend Performing Arts programs and events. Volunteering will give you the opportunity to be a close observer of the development of a championship team.
Volunteering can work with anyone’s schedule at any time of year, whether you are able to donate an hour, a day, a week, or more of your time. You don’t have to be an expert; the majority of our volunteering opportunities do not require special skills other than their time and dedication. For helping with any of our programs and events, we ask that our volunteers be passionate and friendly. Even minors can be accommodated in some roles but might require a parental consent from. If you enjoy leadership and organization, you may wish to see where you might fit with our Volunteer Council.
Why should only members of our programs reap the rewards of life-long friendships? Volunteers, too, become the best of friends – friends, and family, for life. Is there hard, physical labor? For some positions, yes. Are there long work hours? It’s possible in some cases. The “thank you’s” from the members make your time and efforts very worthwhile! There is deep gratification knowing how you have helped young people achieve their dreams and goals.
Join the Ascend Performing Arts family and see, feel, and know the rewards for yourself.
