City of Riverside Volunteers in Action
Parks, Recreation and Community Services
Volunteering gets you involved with more than just your next door neighbor or the people you grew up with, but people you may not see at your local grocery store or in your everyday life. It’s a great opportunity to meet people and start new relationships. It’s incredible to see the community we have here.
- Megan Well, a volunteer with the City of Riverside Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department
The CERT program has trained approximately 2,300 people. The volunteers here in the City of Riverside are the best. We have a wide-variety of opportunities for our volunteers; I have some that love outreach events, some prefer working with shelters or even emergency incidents, and some that simply want to do paperwork.
