Where Operation Smile volunteers go to manage their credentials, apply for missions, and connect with each other.

Welcome to MVAC
Operation Smile's brand-new Medical Volunteer Action Center (MVAC) is more than a website, it is an online community full of individuals committed to making a difference in children’s lives around the world.

In My Credentials and Missions sections, you can get credentialed as a medical volunteer, find and apply for open mission opportunities, prepare for travel, correspond with Operation Smile staff before missions, and stay connected with fellow volunteers afterwards. In short, everything you need as an Operation Smile medical volunteer is now conveniently located in this community.

In Groups, you can join with other volunteers around specific topics, such as medical specialty or interest. Once you've joined a group, you will be able to discuss best practices, share mutual mission experiences, and track developments in your field that relate to your medical volunteerism with Operation Smile. You can also watch for announcements and event postings regarding your topic of interest. (Can't find the topic group you'd like to join? Just let us know and we'll create it!)

Finally, make sure you follow the MVAC Blog so that you can stay on top of what’s new around Operation Smile, catch announcements, and read highlighted content from around the community.

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact the Operation Smile Volunteer Management Team:
