Army Volunteer Corps


The Fort Drum Army Volunteer Corp seeks innovative ideas and processes to improve the quality of life at Fort Drum through the use of volunteer agencies. We offer quality volunteer work experiences in environments where volunteers are appreciated and valued.

Administrative, medical, mentoring, teaching and coaching are a few of the opportunities that are available. Many agencies have flexible schedules and some even reimburse you for childcare. You can volunteer for a day, an evening, for a one-time event or for ongoing activities for as long as you desire.
 

Why Volunteer?

* For the volunteer: Build your resume, contribute to the community, meet new people, share expertise, gain new skills and work experience, be challenged

* For the community: Develop new programs, sustain programs, enrich the quality of life for Soldiers and their families, price and ownership

* Recognition: Volunteer of the month, Installation Impact awards,
national and agency awards.
