How Do I Apply?

Volunteer Process
Citizen Involvement Programs
Special Events
Volunteers are utilized for special events or projects hosted by the City, sometimes for a single-day event - perhaps even for just a few hours. Groups often sign up to volunteer for this type of event. These events will be listed as they arise throughout the year.
Short-Term Projects, Long-Term and Ongoing Opportunities
A City department might request volunteers to work with a short-term project. These opportunities will be posted as they become available.

Various departments within the City request volunteer help for long-term projects or for ongoing assignments within the department that can be filled by an individual volunteer on a regular basis. These opportunities will be posted along with a volunteer service description of the position.

Once your Application has been received by the Human Resources Department it will be forwarded to the appropriate Volunteer Coordinator and/or supervisor.

Applicants for Boards, Commissions, or Committees will be interviewed by the Mayor.

Applicant's for short-term, long-term, and ongoing opportunities will be interviewed by the volunteer coordinator or supervisor. The interview will inform the volunteer about the available opportunities, and give the volunteer coordinator or supervisor an insight to the volunteer's interests, skills, and talents.

All applicants may undergo a background check.

As volunteers are given assignments, the volunteer coordinator and/or supervisor will give the volunteer adequate training to help insure a successful result.

Volunteers will be guided by the City of Farmington's Personnel Rules. Volunteers who do not abide by or violate the responsibilities will be subject to dismissal.
