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.
Volunteers are an integral part of the Rock Island Arsenal community. There are numerous agencies at Rock Island Arsenal that use volunteers. For those of you who are currently Army volunteers, we thank you for your service. For those of you who have not yet become Army volunteers, we ask you to join us.
For information about volunteer opportunities at the Arsenal, contact Dave VanderHeyden at (309) 782-0831 or <a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" target="_blank">email@example.com</a>.
