In 2011, the Fort Leavenworth Community documented over 1500 volunteers and their efforts. Their combined total contribution to the installation totaled almost $2 million. Without the continued support of our volunteer corps Fort Leavenworth would not be the “Best Hometown in the Army”.

At its heart, the Army Volunteer Corps will be an agent of transformation - changing the communities in which Army volunteers live, changing the lives of those whom volunteer efforts affect, and changing the lives of volunteers themselves. The Army Volunteer Corps continues the proud tradition of volunteer service in the history of our Army and extends it into the future, transmitting Army values and pride in our nation, one generation to the next. Volunteers, wherever they provide service to the Army community, stand prepared and ready to serve our nation as proud members of the Army Volunteer Corps.
The Army Volunteer Corps will be resilient, responsive, and forward-looking. It will enable the Army to respond to changes in volunteerism and changes in the needs of the Army community. Working together, volunteers and Army staff will seek flexible approaches to local needs and creative solutions for future challenges.
