The Army Volunteer Corps unifies all those who volunteer in support of Soldiers and Families by emphasizing teamwork and unity - as Army volunteers, while recognizing the individual strengths and contributions of both the volunteers and the organizations with whom they serve.
The AVC concept embraces existing programs, organizations, and military units that utilize volunteers. Although recognizing their autonomy, the AVC is a framework to link all volunteer organizations throughout the Army community. Whether you are a family readiness group volunteer or an Army Family Action Plan volunteer in the National Guard, a Thrift Shop volunteer on an installation, or maybe even a guide in your local museum, you are part of the Army Volunteer Corps. No matter where you volunteer, you are providing services to support Soldiers and Families, and the Army.
