Join Fusion Friends & Family and Support the Drum Corps!
Fusion Friends & Family help support the Core. Team up with other parents, alumni and friends to help support the Core. Volunteering will give you the opportunity to be a close observer of the development of a championship team! Without this support, Fusion Core would not be able to provide the education and life-changing experience for members that it has become well known for doing so well. No special skills are needed other than your time and dedication to Fusion Members.
Why should only members reap the rewards of life-long friendships? Volunteers, too, become the best of friends - friends, and family, for life. The work hours can be long, but the "thank- yous" from the members make your time very worthwhile! There is deep gratification knowing how you have helped people achieve their dreams and goals.
Join Fusion Friends and Family - see, feel, and know the rewards for yourself! Ask any of our volunteers why they are now staunch Fusion supporters. This is a rare opportunity to truly make a difference in the lives of some of the most incredible young people in the world!! If you like challenges, enjoy good times.
