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. The success of many programs aboard MCAS Cherry Point rely heavily on volunteers.

Who can volunteer?

Volunteerism is governed by MCO 5380.2. This applies to those individuals who provide their volunteer services to a Marine Corps entity or have their hours tracked & recognized by the Marine Corps and/or MCCS.

  • Must be 13 years of age or older
  • Minors (unless an active duty military member) must have parental permission to volunteer
  • Must willingly offer, be accepted, and provide voluntary services
  • Must be in an off-duty status if active duty or a civilian employee
  • Cannot count any fundraising activity as volunteerism
