Fort Riley is a Resiliency Center of Excellence for the U.S. Army. The centerpiece of our efforts to support the Warriors and their families is the Resiliency Campus. This complex of facilities and services enables Fort Riley to follow established practices that allow professional staff to meet the needs of our Soldiers.
The Resiliency concept allows forces to withstand the rigors of multiple deployments. It enables Soldiers to deploy, return, refresh and re-energize, and eventually prepare for further assignments. It gives Soldiers, families, programs and practitioners a wide variety of options for addressing stress related to multiple deployments.
The campus includes several core facilities: the Resiliency Learning Center, Physical Fitness Centers, Spiritual Fitness Center and our new Mind Fitness Center.
In addition there are several supporting facilities and programs: Army Training Safety; Army Substance Abuse, which will include suicide prevention; Warrior Readiness Clinic; the Warrior Zone; and the USO.

Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers offers healthy, exciting alternatives for Soldiers doing “the same old thing.”
BOSS is based on three “pillars”:
Quality of life — Quality of life includes those issues that help influence morale, living environment, personal growth and development of Soldiers. Issues raised during meetings will be directed to the appropriate command channels for resolution on the installation.
Recreation and leisure — Fun activities on Fort Riley include ski trips to Colorado, fashion shows, car shows and trips. Several trips are scheduled throughout the year and are geared toward single Soldiers.
Community service — BOSS makes a difference by volunteering in the community and areas surrounding Fort Riley.
VolunteersIf you are looking for something new to do, many agencies on post can use your help. Additionally, the success of those same service agencies depends on volunteers to accomplish their missions.
Many volunteer opportunities exist for individual growth and skill development. Volunteers in the wives’ clubs, Post Thrift Shop, Army Community Service, PTAs, Youth Services, chaplain’s activities, and many other fine organizations help meet volunteer-manpower needs and provide a material service, or benefit, to Soldiers and family members.
Volunteers contribute to Fort Riley’s mission and to its quality of life. If you would like to volunteer, call the volunteer coordinator. The following is a list of agencies that are seeking volunteers:
The American Red Cross
Historical and Archaeological Society of Fort Riley
