ACS Volunteer Corps (AVC)

The Fort Carson Volunteer Corp supports the Army's mission by continuously seeking innovative ideas and processes to improve the quality of life at Fort Carson through the use of volunteer agencies. We promote quality volunteer work experiences and environments that recognize and appreciate the valuable contributions volunteers make to the Fort Carson community.

Assisting as a liaison and resource for government and private volunteer organizations, the Fort Carson Volunteer Program recruits, interview and refers individuals for placement in to volunteer jobs that meet the individual's needs. Volunteer job opportunities may be scheduled for community special events. Community volunteer events include Make a Difference Day, Kit Carson Celebration, Red Ribbon Week and many more that are scheduled throughout the year.

All volunteers providing service to agencies on Fort Carson must register with the Fort Carson Volunteer Program. Volunteers will receive a job description from the organization to which services are performed describing the duties and responsibilities of their volunteer job. The federal government, in the event of injury or loss while performing the volunteer position, provides registered volunteers certain rights and protections. Volunteer work experience is an excellent way for an individual to develop job skills and accumulate work experience in the further promotion of competitive job market skills. Many of our volunteers use their experience to find paying jobs in the Fort Carson and Colorado Springs communities. Volunteering at Fort Carson is a winning experience for everyone, and every year the installation celebrates the outstanding contributions of its volunteers at the annual Volunteer Picnic & Awards Presentation. If you would like to volunteer, stop by and fill out a volunteer registration form, ACS, Bldg. 1526.
