The AVC program embraces existing volunteer programs, unites all volunteers who support Soldiers and families, and formalizes the Army's commitment to volunteerism. Volunteers contribute a broad range of services that enhance and expand the capabilities of Army programs and services. Working as teams, paid and volunteer staff provide real-life solutions for successful military living.
Volunteering allows you to explore new career fields or update your existing skills and accumulate work experience. It's also a wonderful opportunity to meet others who are active participants in the community. The AVC Program promotes quality volunteer work experiences and environments which recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make to the Yuma Proving Ground community.
Anyone wishing to provide voluntary service to organizations on Yuma Proving Ground contact the Army Volunteer Corps Coordinator (AVCC). The AVCC will be happy to set up an appointment at your convenience to discuss volunteer benefits and opportunities, suggest possible placements, and assist you in making contacts with organizations on and off the installation.

AFTB contributes to readiness, performance, retention and recruitment, all vital to the Army's mission. The AFTB program trains Active Duty Families to become a combat multiplier and enhance overall readiness of the force. An informed, empowered Family allows the Service Member to concentrate efforts and focus in on the mission of defending our nation. The Service Member is able to feel confident and secure that his or her Family is better prepared for the challenges of mobilization. After AFTB training, Families can do more to help themselves, the command can focus on its mission while assuring Family members that the military support will be there. Command support of the program is vital to its success. Volunteer opportunities are available!
