Purpose

Volunteer Coordination programs promote volunteer recruitment and retention and support achievement of the program’s mission.

Definition

Volunteer Coordination programs recruit, match, train, track, recognize, and support volunteers.

Note: MIL-VC was updated in June 2017 to reflect current practice. For more information please see the MIL-VC Update Summary

Note: Military family readiness (MFR) Programs will only be assigned Volunteer Coordination (MIL-VC) when:

  1. the MFR program is directly responsible for overseeing the installation, state, or region-wide volunteer coordination program; or
  2. for the Reserve component, the MFR program works closely with the commander to oversee and/or support the volunteer coordination functions outlined in MIL-VC.
Note: Volunteers are divided into two categories: (1) statutory and (2) gratuitous. The standards in MIL-VC may not be appropriate for both types of volunteers and should be contextualized to match the tasks volunteers are asked to perform. For example, statutory volunteers who will be working with children without a parent or legal guardian present will have more intensive screening, training, and supervision requirements than gratuitous volunteers responsible for setting up for a one-time event. 

Note: Please see MIL-VC Reference List for a list of resources that informed the development of these standards.

    • Provide any other information you would like the Peer Review Team to know about the MFR program's volunteer coordination program.
    • A list or description of MIL-VC outcomes and outputs being measured.
