AFAP Needs Volunteers
Keeping AFAP On Target... A Volunteer & Staff
The AFAP program grew out of the voluntary efforts of Army spouses who met to identify and document the concerns of Soldiers and Family members. Looking for the best way to communicate these issues to the highest level of command, the piece of the program that is the AFAP forum was developed.
Integral to the AFAP is the involvement of volunteers at every level. Whether working as a delegate, facilitator, recorder, transcriber, issue disposition person conference committee member, or with paid staff in the office, volunteers are essential to the heart and effectiveness of AFAP.
Benefits of Volunteering
The benefits of volunteering are as individual as the people who volunteer. Reasons to volunteer range from enjoying the feeling of accomplishment, to learning a new skill or maintaining a skill's proficiency. Others know the benefits of the socialization and community involvement that go along with the flexibility a full time job does not offer.
It would be difficult for many of our Army Family programs to offer the variety and quality program without the volunteers who devote their time and talents. The listing of positions available will provide you with an idea as to whether or not you would be interested in volunteering.
You hold the key to your personal success and to the success of the AFAP Program!
