Welcome, and thank you for your interest in volunteering at West Point
The Admissions Team is fortunate to be supported by volunteers from across the country. We call this group of individuals our “Field Force.” Some will spend time meeting with prospective cadets and families; others will attend a college fair or reception when the Admissions Team member is not available. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact our Liaison Officer, whose information is located at the bottom of this page.
Military Academy Liaison Officer (MALO) Program
Admissions has a unique program that permits officers assigned to the Army Reserve IRR program to have, as their dedicated reserve assignment, supporting the Directorate of Admissions. Duties include representing Admissions at events and activities within their local congressional district throughout each admissions cycle including at college fairs, congressional service academy days, meeting with school officials (teachers, guidance counselors, and various school district leadership), mentoring candidates and parents through the admission and nomination processes, assisting congressional district offices during nomination interview meetings, assisting Admissions diversity program office, and assisting Admissions at USMA on an “as needed” basis.
Officers in other reserve capacities can perform these same duties without being assigned to a MALO position and enjoy many of the same benefits as MALOs including accruing additional reserve duty points when representing Admissions at events or performing Admissions-related duties and assignments as described above.
Please click on the documents below to download additional information about the MALO program.
If you have any questions or would like to submit your application to become a MALO, please contact Reserve Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
