Become a Volunteer

Why should you Volunteer?
For yourself and the community; by volunteering you’ll explore areas of interest or new career fields, and build new networking relationships. If you’re looking for professional job experience, volunteering will give you the opportunity to gain new skills and work experience for inclusion on your next job application or resume. The benefits of volunteerism are endless!

Volunteers provide invaluable support to the military community, donating thousands of hours each month at agencies across Joint Base San Antonio.



How to become a Volunteer
The Volunteer Management Information System (VMIS) is an online tool providing a real-time snapshot of volunteer opportunities. VMIS is a platform that allows organizations on Joint Base San Antonio to share their volunteer openings. It creates a centralized location for the community to see what opportunities are available and apply. VMIS also helps volunteers to manage their volunteer service record, trainings, and certificates and track their hours. It also helps show the command how valuable volunteer support is for our community.

Need help registering? The Volunteering 101 workshop offered at our Fort Sam Houston location can help with navigating the system and review the in's and out's of volunteering on a military installation.

Volunteer Advisory Council (VAC)

The VAC is comprised of representatives from agencies having volunteers, appropriate command spouses, and community representatives. The VAC meets monthly to discuss current volunteer issues and share program plans, successes, and proposed events.
