Job Descriptions

The SCA is an educational organization led solely by volunteers who are motivated by their love of history, creativity, and service.  Officers create the structure that enables members to enjoy the full experience of the Middle Ages in this modern era. Filling the position of an SCA officer is a unique opportunity to volunteer for an international non-profit organization at a level that empowers young people to grow, learn, and interact with others both in and out of the university system from all over the state without being overwhelmed by the magnitude of the organization.  Volunteer positions look great on a resume, especially if they are for organizations outside of the ASU student club norm.
