Hello COSA Community!

Do you know young people that are passionate about creating positive change?

Do you know young people who aren’t sure what their next steps are?

Or do you know young people who just need a job that pays a living wage?

Then I have great news! Mile High Youth Corps is hiring for our Fall Forestry Land Conservation season!

Fall Forestry is a team-based, 10-13 week-long program with openings in two locations: Colorado Springs or Denver. Fall Forestry participants (called Corpsmembers) serve on environmental stewardship projects on public lands throughout the Southern Front Range and Denver Metro regions. Corpsmembers will be enrolled in AmeriCorps—a national community service program. No experience is required! We will provide hands-on training related to all projects.

The Fall Forestry program starts on August 23rd and continues through October 29th or November 19th(depending on service site). To apply please follow this link: https://www.milehighyouthcorps.org/apply-now/

­­­Program Highlights:

· Grow your community, build a network and experience adventure every day at MHYC.

· Corpsmembers will receive a bi-weekly living stipend of $960 (before taxes). Some Corpsmembers may be offered leadership positions that affect their stipend. Corpsmember Drivers will receive a bi-weekly living stipend of $980 (before taxes). Returning Corpsmembers will receive a bi-weekly living stipend of $1000 (before taxes).

· Upon completing the program, Corpsmembers will receive $1,000+ AmeriCorps Education Award, which can be used for tuition or paying qualified student loans.

· Throughout the program, Corpsmembers will have access to: five free mental health counseling sessions, on-property food bank, health insurance (after a 60-day period), and networking.

· Corpsmembers may earn certifications in a variety of areas including: First Aid/CPR, S-212 Wildland Fire Chainsaws, Ecological Restoration, Trail Structures, and others.

As an organization, Mile High Youth Corps is committed to the work of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. We strive to do this through practices that are culturally responsive, transparent, and representative. We invest time educating and evaluating ourselves. Being a Corpsmember is a great way to get involved in this work and show up for our community.
