Army Volunteer Corps Program – Cost Benefit/Cost Effectiveness Analysis

Partnership/Type: Army
Status: Completed Project

Volunteering is instrumental to many efforts to support successful functioning of local communities. Strategic community interventions to augment volunteerism can bring substantial resources into local communities. The Army Community Services’ Army Volunteer Corps (AVC) represents the largest such program for military populations in the world. This work presents findings from an evaluation of the fiscal and societal contributions of over 30,000 volunteers participating in the AVC. The AVC produced over 3 million volunteer hours annually (over 1,300 FTEs) with a positive return-on-investment.
