Riverside FANS (Friends, Allies & Neighbors) gives volunteers a chance to connect with the people we serve. Have a particular skill to share? Want to coach a Special Olympics team? No matter your interest, we have a volunteer opportunity for you. And if not, we will create one just for you!
Our volunteer opportunities are tailored to each person and no contribution is too small. This individualized approach allows you to choose an area of service that suits you and your schedule and provides you with a rewarding experience.
Want to be a Riverside FAN? Join our email list and receive our monthly newsletters. Once you are ready to start volunteering, fill out our FANS Application. If you have questions, please contact us.
