Army Reserve Family Programs

Volunteers are people who have a sense of commitment to their chosen pursuit. Volunteers in the Army Reserve Family Readiness Programs may be government employees (military and civilian), Family members, Retirees, or anyone who has an active interest. Federal employees may not volunteer for programs in which they are employed.

Volunteers augment the unit and higher headquarters’ services and readiness capability. Volunteers are non-paid staff working at various levels. They have access to unit resources for their official duties in support of the Soldier and Family Readiness Group (SFRG). Volunteers may not hold policy-making positions, supervise paid employees or military personnel, or perform inherently governmental functions such as determining entitlements to benefits, authorizing expenditures of Government funds or deciding rights and responsibilities of any party under Government requirements.
