Volunteer FAQs

We rely heavily on our volunteers and cannot run certain programs or events without the help of our dedicated volunteers. It is important, therefore, to ASYMCA and those we serve, that volunteers honor their commitment once they have signed up for an assignment.

Volunteer opportunities are managed through the U.S. Army Volunteer Management System (VMIS). Once you register at you’ll be able to reserve your time and position. If you do not see an opportunity available, please contact Amber Espindola at for other possible opportunities available.

Each volunteer must use their VMIS account to schedule themselves and report all hours served.

Volunteers are expected to report their hours served within 24 hours of the assignment date. All hours for a month must be entered by the end of the month for accurate tracking. Travel time, unless stated by the Volunteer Manager, is not a part of logged hours.
