Army Volunteer Corps

 

Volunteers make a meaningful difference in the lives of Soldiers and their Families every day. Army Volunteer Corps (AVC) is designed to help you find local volunteering opportunities with organizations that benefit the Army community.

The AVC has redefined volunteering within the Army. We embrace existing volunteer programs, unite all volunteers who support Soldiers and Families, including the Active Force, National Guard and Army Reserve, and formalize the Army’s commitment to volunteerism.

No matter where people volunteer in the Army community, they usually want to contribute to Soldiers and their Family members. We recognize this common goal and want to help you find the right opportunity for you.

Volunteering helps your community and helps you as well. When you participate with AVC, you’ll:

  • Gain a sense of satisfaction/achievement by meeting challenges
  • Learn about the Army, our sister services, and the community
  • Acquire new skills and/or expand old ones
  • Obtain work experience
  • Build new friendships and become a cohesive part of the community

Contact your local Army Volunteer Coordinator within your Army Community Service Center to register and learn about volunteer opportunities across the Army.

More information is also available from Army Family Web Portal

The Army Volunteer Corps focuses on supporting Soldiers, Family members, surviving spouses, and civilian personnel through community involvement. Volunteer opportunities are available both on and off post. Individuals are matched to volunteer positions according to skill, experience and time available. Childcare is offered in some activities. Participants learn new skills, make friends, and become a part of the community. Volunteering can also be a wonderful way to gain job experience.

Go to Army Family Web Portal  to register and apply for available positions or contact us to learn more about available volunteer opportunities

Getting Started

To review current vacancies, search the Fort Gordon volunteer opportunities on the Volunteer Management Information System (VMIS).

Every volunteer (to include youth volunteers) on Fort Gordon must be registered in VMIS. This system was developed to give the Army a real-time snapshot of volunteer activities at any given time, at any given installation. VMIS provides all of the tools needed to track volunteer hours, manage and track volunteers, post open positions, print reports and much more. All volunteer hours will be tracked through VMIS.

Regularly scheduled introductory workshops on how to use VMIS are conducted each month. Check the ACS calendar or our ACS Facebook page for dates and times.


How to enter Volunteer hours in to VMIS:
