Volunteer & Internship Opportunities

Riverside offers many opportunities to volunteer or intern at One Cottage Street in Easthampton, MA.

Life Enrichment Interns are college students interested in or studying occupational therapies. They can volunteer two hours a week or more for one semester. Students are involved with individualized and group programs, activities, and community outings, designed to maximize the independence, skills, and self-esteem of individuals living with more significant developmental disabilities. Contact Amy Barker at abarker@rsi.org.

Riverside Gardens Interns and Volunteers arrive at One Cottage Street by 9:15am and travel by van with Riverside staff and participants working at our farm, just minutes away in Southampton. Everyone returns at 11:45am for lunch. Contact Nick Isherwood at nisherwood@rsi.org.
