An efficient volunteer program helps to provide optimum service to the command. The volunteer program provides an opportunity for family members to gain valuable experience and to offer FFSC their valuable resources. The FFSC volunteer program mainly concentrates on in-house activities, which could benefit the services provided to the military community and is not to be confused with community service required by the courts. Community service is also a requirement for Graduation from the public school in Maryland. The FFSC staff identifies areas of operation that would benefit from volunteer help. Volunteers may be recruited, interviewed, selected and trained to work in such areas as reception, programs, or special projects. The Family Employment Readiness Program (FERP) acts as the Volunteer Coordinator. The FERP maintains written volunteer position descriptions and individual volunteer records.
