Volunteering at the City of Fayetteville

The City of Fayetteville understands the importance of community involvement in our programs and committees. That is why we offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities for everyone to get involved. Everyone can make a difference.

We have opportunities throughout the year for every type of interest, experience, skill level, and various time commitments - form a few hours on a single project to serving on a board or committee that requires several hours per month, and lots in between.

Fayetteville has several opportunities for you to get involved in the community right now. If you don't see something that interests you below contact the Communications Department.  We can often find an opportunity to suit your interests.

City Departments that have an ongoing need for volunteers include:

- the Parks and Recreation Department - Adopt-a-Park, Adopt-a-Trail, Coaches & helpers for recreational and sports programs, gardening and clean-up assistance at city parks, Trail Trekkers, and much more. Go to the Parks Department Volunteer Section for more information or contact the Parks Volunteer Coordinator.

- City Boards, Committees, and Commissions - Fayetteville citizens can apply to serve on a city board or commision. For more information go to the City Clerk's Boards and Commissions Section.

- Fayetteville Forward Action Groups - there are several action groups focused on various areas.
