> How to Volunteer at Fort Eustis
The Army Volunteer Corps Coordinator (AVCC) assists potential volunteers with locating volunteer organizations and opportunities at Fort Eustis that are right for them.
The AVCC will put you in contact with the Organizational Point of Contact (OPOC) from the organization you want to volunteer with. During this time, the volunteer and OPOC should agree upon a position in which the volunteer will serve. The volunteer must receive a copy of the position description and must register PRIOR to beginning volunteer service.
> Register to Volunteer
1) Attend a Volunteer Orientation. For dates and times, visit the Community Calendar on our homepage.
2) Register on the Volunteer Management Information System (VMIS). Fort Eustis organizations are now on line with the Department of the Army Volunteer Management Information System (VMIS). The system is used to track volunteer hours, training and awards. All installation volunteers are required to register in this system and document hours each month.

> Volunteer Recognition
Each year, Fort Eustis volunteers contribute thousands of hours toward making Fort Eustis a better community. Fort Eustis truly values each of its volunteers and recognizes them.
During National Volunteer Week in April of each year, we honor our volunteers by recognizing their contributions at our Annual Volunteer Recognition Ceremony. All registered volunteers are invited to attend the ceremony, where special awards are presented.
Each quarter, the Installation recognizes the Volunteers of the Quarter for each volunteer organization at an Installation Volunteer of the Quarter Ceremony. For more information on this event, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 878-3638.
