It’s that time of year again! Mile High Youth Corps has kicked off hiring for our Summer Land Conservation programs. From May through August of 2012, you could spend your days working throughout the Front Range on projects that directly benefit the environment and the local communities where we work. Both Denver and Colorado Springs have offices that will run crews for our 2012 season.
In Denver, crews will meet daily at our 1801 Federal Blvd. location and be transported to their work site in the mountains or around the metro area. Colorado Springs crews, however, will have the chance to work and camp on site. Camping crews will live on their worksite in mountain locations for up to ten days at a time. During that time, food will be provided by Mile High Youth Corps, as well as some camping equipment. Projects include trail building, invasive species removal, habitat rehabilitation and mountain pine beetle eradication. This one-of-a-kind summer job is sure to satisfy as your office will likely be the side of a mountain or a natural reserve.
Be sure to apply now and tell your friends! Applicants must be between the ages of 18-24. In addition, you must currently have a G.E.D., H.S. diploma or be enrolled in a program to receive one of the two. The program will run from May 16th, 2012 – August 10th, 2012. All positions for the Summer Land Conservation crews are paid positions (paid bi-weekly) and will also include the opportunity to earn an AmeriCorps Education Award (scholarship).
