The City of Fort Collins (FC) Volunteer Program is designed to creatively engage people in their unique talents. Everyone has unique talents, and when those are paired with a passion to help the results can be amazing. With that aim, the City promotes volunteer involvement to improve services and create community.
Safe Routes to School
Safe Routes to School seeks to increase the number of students safely walking and bicycling to school.
