This morning Mile High Youth Corps 2009/2010 YouthBuild Corpsmembers graduated from the program and celebrated their nine months of successes. MHYC staff, friends and family gathered to congratulate the Corpsmembers who have spent the last nine months working toward completing their GEDs and learning green construction skills.
Thanks to all the friends, family and children who helped support and motivate the Corpsmembers today and throughout their YouthBuild terms.
Some of the people who helped make this YouthBuild term a great success were recognized including Outstanding Youth Advocate Dr. Sarah E. Burgamy (MHYC counselor), Outstanding Community Partner Lynne Picard (Denver Housing Authority) and Outstanding Employer Partner Angie Rubeck (MTech Mechanical Technologies Group).

This has been a great year and we wish all the 2009/2010 YouthBuild Corpsmembers the best as thier doors as Corpsmembers close and they venture into their next journey.
