Colorado Youth Outdoors relies heavily on volunteers to successfully accomplish our mission. Volunteer needs include program support, fundraising, mentorship, construction/maintenance, and marketing. We welcome all ages of volunteers from supervised youth to adults. In the past, CYO has hosted corporate volunteer projects from Cargill, Noble Energy, Copper Springs Solutions, and Wisdom Tree Care. We hosted non-profit volunteer efforts such as Larimer County 4H Archery, Fort Collins Rotary, Young Men’s Service League and Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado as well.

CYO Sportsmen’s club – For those retired individuals who want to use their wealth of knowledge and experience to help Colorado Youth Outdoors. We have a group meeting every Tuesday morning at 8:30 am, the CYO sportsman’s club meets to tell fish stories, enjoy great conversation and give back to CYO through volunteering. Each meeting features a CYO update, upcoming volunteer needs and equipment prep and repair projects all with a cup of coffee and breakfast.
