Army Reserve Voluntary Education Services is a Department of Defense that provides lifelong learning opportunities for Selected Reserve Soldiers that enhance their personal and professional development. Voluntary Education Services enhances recruitment, retention, and readiness of the Army Reserve.

The Army Reserve Voluntary Education Services program offers an array of education opportunities and support programs, which include the following:

Army Reserve Education Services Specialists provide Soldiers with guidance and assistance in planning their education to enhance their military careers and make them more competitive in the civilian job market. In addition, the Army Reserve Voluntary Education Services will continue to partner with DANTES to provide professional certification and licensure examinations to Soldiers, spouses and Civilians.

Many Soldiers enlist in the Army for educational benefits. This is a win-win situation for the Soldier and the Army. Education is one of the most important elements in developing a Soldier to reach his or her potential. The Army Reserve understands that an educated Soldier is better equipped to handle the tactical and technical challenges facing Soldiers today and, therefore, views education as one of the best enhancements possible in developing an Army of capable and determined warriors to defend our Nation.
