Corpsmembers have the opportunity to work on land, energy and water conservation projects throughout the Denver Metro area. Gain job and technical skills while serving your community! Corpsmembers will receive a living stipend and an AmeriCorps education award to be used towards college.
Youth must have a GED or high school diploma and be 18-24 years old.
Mile High Youth Corps would like to send out a heartfelt thank you to all of our donors and supporters throughout the year. Without you, our Corpsmembers could not have made such a great impact on our community this year.
So far in 2014, a total of 232 young adults completed more than 95,000 hours of work in communities across Colorado. YouthBuild Corpsmembers helped construct 77 units of affordable housing. Members of the Energy & Water Conservation program helped families and nonprofit organizations conserve more than 41 million gallons of water and saved clients more than $255,000 on utilities bills. Land Conservation crews constructed, maintained or rehabilitated more than 58,000 feet of trails, planted 378 trees and shrubs and cleared 580 acres of land.
But the individual impact your support has had on the youth who serve with us is just as powerful. Through all of these projects, they learn valuable trade skills, receive a living stipend and can earn an AmeriCorps Education Award to use toward higher education.
Thank you for making all of this possible!
