Volunteers & Unpaid Internships

The City of Fayetteville understands the importance of community involvement in our programs and committees. There are a number of volunteer opportunities with the City.

Boards, Committees & Commissions       

Fayetteville boards, committees, and commissions consist of mostly volunteer residents who are devoted to giving their time and expertise on issues relating to each board, committee, or commission.
