Become a CAP Member

There's a place in CAP for everyone! For cadets, you must be at least 12 years old and not yet 19. For senior members, you don't have to be a pilot or have any military experience. CAP needs teachers, lawyers, IT professionals, chaplains, marketing experts, human resources professionals, and more. Whatever your background or experience, there's a place for you in CAP.
