Mile High Youth Corps Colorado Springs: Let’s get to know ya!

Most MHYC Denver staff and Corpsmembers have never seen the CO Springs Office. So instead of taking a trip there, I thought I would save some gas and bring CO Springs to you! Read about the great people that work in the office and take a look at the flikr album to get a sense of what the place looks like!
