BETTER OPPORTUNITIES FOR SINGLE SOLDIERS PROGRAM
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 the 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.
If 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 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:
• American Red Cross.
• Historical and Archaeological Society of
• Community Life Program.
• Parent Teacher Association.
• Army Community Service.
• Chaplain’s Program.
• Youth Services.
• USO Fort Riley.
• CAUSE: Comfort for America’s Uniformed Services.
