Army Volunteer Corps

Volunteer!

Welcome! If you are interested in making a difference in the community where you live, work or play, or your job requires documented community service, volunteer opportunities at Fort Gordon may be just what you’re looking for.

Getting Started

To review current vacancies, search the Fort Gordon volunteer opportunities on the Volunteer Management Information System, commonly known as VMIS.

Every volunteer (to include youth volunteers) on Fort Gordon must be registered in VMIS. This system was developed to give the Army a real-time snapshot of volunteer activities at any given time, at any given installation. VMIS provides all of the tools needed to track volunteer hours, manage and track volunteers, post open positions, print reports, and much more. All volunteer hours will be tracked through VMIS.

Regularly scheduled introductory workshops on how to use VMIS are conducted each month. Check the ACS calendar or our ACS Facebook page for dates and times.

For more information, contact our Army Volunteer Corps Coordinator at 706-791-3579.
