Why
Support MHYC?

In Denver and the Southern Front Range of Colorado, Mile High Youth Corps’ nationally recognized, award-winning programs engage young adults, ages 17 to 24, in vital community service projects. Corpsmembers benefit from career readiness and leadership training while gaining valuable real-world job experience. They also earn an AmeriCorps Education Award to help pay for post-secondary education and pay-off student loans.
