NextGenServe--Apply today!

NextGenServe is a City volunteer service club for youth ages 11-18 that focuses on growing leadership skills and service in the Fort Collins community. Volunteers learn about a variety of career paths and work alongside trained City staff in various settings, including parks, natural areas, and the Garden on Spring Creek.  

In addition, the NextGen program adopts the Xeriscape Garden outside of City Hall over the summer, where they meet and interact with City leaders from across the organization, have opportunities to talk to City staff about their career path, and learn about jobs in local government. 

This opportunity is open to all youth interested in and driven to learn about leadership, service to their community, and a desire to explore a variety of careers.
