YOUTH CREWS

YOUTH CORps (Ages 11-18)

Through our Youth Programs, RMYC provides leadership and hands-on workforce experience for youth ages 11-18. Participants provide service to communities including beautifying, weeding, trail work, restoration, gardening, and other conservation based projects in 10 counties in North West Colorado each year. RMYC offers a diverse set of skills training opportunities including trail work, environmental restoration, and wildlife habitat management. 

 

Being part of an RMYC crew involves spending two weeks working with a team of 8-10 people and completing meaningful conservation projects throughout northwest Colorado. Corps members complete sustainability based projects during the week and have to opportunity to camp with their crew. Participation involves hard work in tough conditions, but makes for amazing memories and experiences.
