Army Volunteer Corps

avc_logo.jpgThe Army Volunteer Corps provides people interested in gaining experience and recognition for their contributions with volunteer opportunities throughout the U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden. 

The Annual Volunteer Recognition Ceremony identifies the outstanding contributions of the volunteers in U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden and distinguishes those volunteers who have contributed innovative and exemplary service. 

The Volunteer of the Year Awards honors those individuals who exemplify the role of the volunteer, as well as those who make a significant positive impact on the lives of others. The volunteer service for those nominated for the VOYA must have been performed during the period between April 1, 2020, and March 31, 2021.

While the Volunteer Recognition Ceremony recognizes all volunteers, regardless of their registration in the Volunteer Management Information System, those volunteers who are nominated for the VOYA must be registered in VMIS and have their volunteer hours submitted and certified. Volunteers can self-register and submit their hours in VMIS by going to https://vmis.armyfamilywebportal.com or they can be registered as a “non-user” by their Organizational Point of Contact. Regardless of nomination status, VMIS registration and logging hours is highly encouraged.

This year we will also recognize the Category I, II, III, IV organizations with the highest number of VMIS certified hours during the period between  April 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021.

Registration Information
