Volunteer with ARO

The City of Fort Collins Adaptive Recreation Opportunities (ARO) program provides quality and equal opportunities for recreation and leisure programs to community members with disabilities. ARO provides recreational opportunities for children, teens, and adults with various disabilities including physical, mental, developmental, social, and/or emotional challenges. Programs are offered at various locations during the day, in the evenings, and on weekends.
