Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer with the Hawthorne Caballeros

The Hawthorne Caballeros would not be as successful as we are without the dozens of people working behind the scenes - our Volunteers! There is always something to do, whether it be driving a truck to managing uniforms to building and maintaining props, and this would not happen without the helping hands of our Volunteers.

The Caballeros are ALWAYS looking for an extra set of hands, especially during our biggest weekends - our home show the Grand Prix and during DCI Championships.

Interested in helping us our this upcoming season? Check out what Volunteer roles we’re looking to find help with and then fill out the form request and we’ll get back to you.

All Volunteers are subject to the DCI and Caballeros code of conduct and policies.  This includes a formal background check and training.

Volunteer Opportunitues

Truck Drivers

We have three vehicles that need to be moved for all rehearsals and performances except for Indianapolis. All of these do not require a CDL but experience with trailers and trucks 26’ in length is a plus!

Prop Building & Maintenance

We regularly need people to help us build props and maintain our vehicles and headquarters. These tasks can include jobs that could be completed by Carpenters, Electricians, Mechanics, and other unique skills.

Uniform Management

This season we are looking for a person to take over responsibility for all the uniforms. We can always use people to help us look awesome throughout the season as well as help with sizing, fitting, and alterations.


We're looking for someone or multiple people to take photos and videos of the drum corps during rehearsals, parades, and performances.

Food Service

On a normal weekend we have to feed 150 people per meal and provide drinks and snacks along the day.

Performance Onload/Offload

We're always looking for help getting equipment on and off the field for performances.

Grand Prix Event Staff

We'll need help with parking, tickets, crowd control, set up & break down, our Ad Journal, and even more.

Parade Help

During parade season we're looking for anyone willing to walk along the corps and hand out water and provide support during parades.
