The Volunteer Program provides opportunities to active duty personnel, their family members, retirees, veterans and civilians to connect the installation and community volunteer resources. Across the globe Marines, Sailors and their families are giving back to their communities.

Volunteerism is aligned with Marine Corps Leadership goals by supporting Marines, Sailors, and their families through impact volunteer opportunities that allow them to grow personally and professionally. HQMC is collaborating with all programs, activities and installations to grow volunteerism for Marines, Sailors and their families in addition to connecting with the surrounding communities.

Volunteerism is paramount to the success of many programs aboard MCAS Cherry Point.  If you would like more information on volunteer opportunities both on and off the installation, please call 252-466-4101 or email:
