Gearing up for the YouthBuild USA’s National Conference of Young Leaders!


We are excited for our YouthBuild Corpsmembers, Jenny Rios-Quintero and Chantel Clark, to take their first trip to Washington D.C. for the 26th Annual AmeriCorps Conference of Young Leaders! They will represent Mile High Youth Corps among one hundred delegates around the country to develop their leadership skills by attending workshops (all led by YouthBuild graduates) and meeting Congressional leaders.

Chantel expressed what this conference means to her:

“This a unique opportunity that I’ve been given. I’ve never had the chance to go out of state. I’m excited to meet people from all over the country and experience something completely new!”

Stay tuned for more on the summit when they return!
