Sharing the Joy of Service with the Next Generation#
Looking for ways to engage your teens in service to the community? NextGenServe was created just for them. Youth ages 13-18 can now join a series of service projects designed just for them. Volunteering provides valuable life experience that is helpful for college applications and future jobs. NextGenServe is meant to feel like a club that combines fun + learning + service for a meaningful summer experience. Projects vary by date and time. Teens will be supervised by trained, young adults who have passed a stringent background check.

The City of Fort Collins seeks willing volunteers who want to help their neighbors with tree branch removal in response to the damage left by the March snowstorm. Volunteers will be assigned in pairs to neighbors who face challenges tending to branch removal and need one-time assistance. Volunteers should have access to reliable vehicle. Access to a trailer and hand tools are helpful, but not required.
FC Volunteers contribute over 150,000 hours per year with an annual economic impact of $3.9 million for our City. Almost 11,000 people volunteered for the City of Fort Collins in 2019. The top three departments for volunteer hours include Recreation, Police Service and Parks.
