Rocky Mountain Youth Corps is now hiring fall trail crew members!
In RMYC’s Conservation Corps we offer opportunities for young adults to spend a season serving on meaningful conservation projects throughout northwest Colorado.
Projects may include a variety of trail construction/maintenance, fence construction/removal, invasive species removal, wild fire fuels reduction, habitat restoration and/or historic preservation work. During the Fall season there is the possible potential for disaster relief deployment.
Fall Season: Crews will Travel to projects, work and camp together 4-10 days at a time and then will return to the office and be ‘OFF’ for 2-6 days at a time. While rare some projects/logistics may require crews to operate in a 24/7 setting during which you would remain with your crew near the work site during your off project days for a portion of the Fall. During your ‘OFF’ time you are responsible for your own food and lodging.All corps members will participate in project work, daily camp chores, educational activities throughout the week, and weekend recreation (summer only). Spending a season with RMYC can be a life changing and rewarding experience. Successful candidates will demonstrate a commitment to service, diversity, self-development, and the team environment.
