Installation Volunteer Program
Being new in a community is understandably uncomfortable. No one knows you. No one knows what you can offer or what kind of skills you possess or training you’ve had. One way you can ingratiate yourself into your new Army community and home is by volunteering.
If you’re interested, the Army Volunteer Corps (AVC) is looking for people just like you to assist with programs for children, provide support and social activities for family members, or serve in hospitals, churches and recreation programs. The AVC is a good opportunity to learn new skills, and make contacts and new friends. The possibilities are too numerous to list, but this is a place to put your special talents, gifts and skills to work. You could write stories, design posters, teach classes, share computer skills or work with any number of other things that will give you a chance to learn about and contribute to your Army community.
Volunteering gives you a chance to try something new or sharpen skills you already have. This is a great way to help yourself while you help others.
