As the schoolyear starts and new community members settle in, soldiers and family members often seek opportunities to take advantage of what Fort Leavenworth offers. The installation hosts various events to enjoy and organizations to join, many of which provide the option to serve as a volunteer.
The following is a guide to volunteering on post, organizations that offer opportunities and motivation to get involved.
Volunteer Management Information System
Many on-post organizations serving the installation list their volunteer opportunities on the Army Volunteer Management Information System at https://vmis.armyfamilywebportal.com/.
VMIS allows volunteers to browse opportunities by ZIP code, contact Army Volunteer Corps coordinators and track volunteer hours online. VMIS is a viable resource to find and apply for volunteer positions around the installation.
Users can search as a guest on the website, but more opportunities are available to those who create an account and verify their information.
