City of Fort Collins Engage

Welcome to Engage!  Engage helps you manage your involvement, either as a participant or volunteer, sponsored by the FC Volunteer Program. Browse the calendar, edit your profile, and get involved!

The Volunteer Services Program (VSP) recognizes the impact that both new and experienced volunteers have on our community. We help match new volunteers with potential interest areas and offer continuing education opportunities to our existing volunteers.

Signing up for a volunteer position is just the beginning -- Welcome to the City!

The General Application Process:

The best place to start as an incoming volunteer is to fill out the General Volunteer Application. This application will allow you to share your interests and skills with a Volunteer Services staff member. We will facilitate a conversation one-on-one with you to discover your WHY. Volunteering is meaningful to you and the program you impact -- we want you to enjoy it every step of the way! 

After submitting the General Volunteer Application you will get a personalized email response listing possible opportunities and next can also opt into an informal interview with a member of the VSP team to connect, discuss multiple options, and direct you to a department (or several departments) that might be a good fit!

Note: We will ask you to fill out department-specific applications throughout your time volunteering with the City. We encourage you to apply for any and all opportunities that interest you. Remember, we are available to help you navigate Engage and the application process -- email us at
