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 OneSource.
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.

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.
