Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering for your City is one of the best ways that you can give back to your immediate community...and make a big impact! The City is always looking for individuals to volunteer on boards and committees, in recreation programs, and during special events.

Open Volunteer Positions

Adopt a Flower Bed

Every spring, residents and organizations are given the opportunity to adopt a flower bed in Woodland Park. Our Facilities & Grounds team provides the flowers, tools, and suggested planting pattern. We ask volunteers to plant the flower beds and to pull weeds in their garden throughout the season. Register as an individual or group by contacting Grace Johnson at 719 687 5218 or gjohnson@city-woodlandpark.org.

Boards, Committees, Commissions

The City seeks volunteers to serve on various boards, committees, and commissions. These are opportunities for residents to use their unique insight and experiences as a participant in city government.


Victim Advocates

The Woodland Park Police Department has openings for local volunteers, who are interested in working with law enforcement helping crime victims by providing immediate support and resources. Applicants must be 21 years or older, pass a background check, and have a valid Colorado Driver’s license. Victim Advocates will receive 40 hours of initial training and be on call with other advocates responding to crime scenes at the request of law enforcement (no contact with offenders) For more information please contact Erika Vida, Program Coordinator at 719-686-2535 or evida@city-woodlandpark.org.
