The San Ramon Valley Islamic Center is an organization driven purely by the blessings that its volunteers bring. We have formed several committees which are responsible for various aspects of the Center and its activities.
The following committees offer volunteer opportunities.

|Highway Cleanup Committee||[email protected]||As part of the Adopt-a-Highway program, a section of Highway 680 Southbound (between Crow Canyon Road and Bollinger Canyon Road exits) has been assigned to SRVIC for maintenance.
SRVIC is responsible for picking up litter from this section of the highway once a month. In exchange, Caltrans has put up an Adopt-a-Highway sign with SRVIC’s name just before the Crow Canyon Road exit.
In the past few months we have conducted four training sessions at which over 25 volunteers have been trained. During this time, we have had four cleaning sessions, each with around 10 to 12 volunteers. These volunteers participate in the cleaning sessions on a rotational basis. We are always looking for new volunteers.
