Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are vital to the success of The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program. With the dedication and effort of our volunteers, Eddie Eagle's lifesaving message has reached an average of a million children each year since the program's inception in 1988.

As volunteers, our goal is to reach every child with Eddie's lifesaving message and establish permanent use of the program throughout the country. Volunteers prosper in a multitude of functions such as instructors or promoters, generating interest in the Eddie Eagle Program throughout their community.

Instructor
Plays the role of educator, empowering children with the knowledge they need to avoid firearm accidents. Certification to teach the program is not required. Our step-by-step instructor guides provide volunteers with the information necessary to effectively teach the program. Program materials that kids will enjoy include: an animated DVD, student workbooks, and student reward stickers. Volunteers can teach the program in local schools, libraries, or religious and civic organizations.

Promoter
Assists the Eddie Eagle Program at the grassroots level. Their role is to present Eddie Eagle materials throughout their community. Volunteers introduce the program to local school boards, law enforcement agencies and state legislatures. Volunteers can also attend community functions to hand out Eddie Eagle literature to parents and children. Local businesses and medical professionals can also be contacted to distribute materials to their customers.
