INSTALLATION VOLUNTEER PROGRAM     (Return to Top)

 

Bldg. 1526                                    526-4590

 

Hours:  0730-1615 Monday-Friday

 

The Installation Volunteer Program supports the Army mission by continuously seeking innovative ideas and processes to improve the Quality of Life at Fort Carson through the use of volunteers and volunteer agencies.  The program advocates for a quality volunteer work experience and environment that recognizes and appreciates the valuable contribution which volunteers make to the Fort Carson community.

 

Serving as a liaison and resource for government and private volunteer organizations, the Installation Volunteer Program recruits, interviews, and refers individuals for placement in volunteer job opportunities that meet the individual’s needs.  Volunteer job opportunities may be regularly scheduled or community special events.  There is a place for everyone to volunteer on Fort Carson.

 

All volunteers providing gratuitous service to agencies on Fort Carson must register with the Installation Volunteer Program.  Volunteers shall receive a job description from the organization to which services performed that describes the duties and responsibilities of each volunteer job.  The Federal Government in the event of injury or loss while performing job description duties provides installation volunteers (who have completed the registration process) certain rights and protections.  Childcare subsidy is available for designated Installation Volunteer jobs.

 

Volunteer work experience is an excellent way for an individual to develop job skills and accumulate work experience to promote job marketability.  Many of our Installation Volunteers use their volunteer work experience to find paying jobs in the Fort Carson and Colorado Springs communities.  Volunteering at Fort Carson is a winning experience for everyone.

 

Installation volunteer opportunities are available at the following agencies:

 

Army Community Service           Thrift Shop

American Red Cross                  3rd ACR Museum

Scouting Programs                     Public Affairs Office
