Hello COSA Members!

Mile High Youth Corps are hiring for our Land Conservation Leader positions that are based out of Denver and Colorado Springs. Please see full position descriptions attached for more information.

A little bit about MHYC and about the positions:

Work outdoors, make a difference, and make a better future for yourself at Mile High Youth Corps.

We are a group of young people who are focused on benefitting the environment and educating ourselves on the issues that face our community.

This is not like other jobs. We are a grassroots organization that is committed to providing training, mentorship, and opportunities to youth.

Spend this 2024 being supported by supervisors who care about your development, peers that are passionate about nature, and a real community. Who knows where this could lead you?

Become a Land Conservation Leader for our Land Conservation program! The Land Conservation program is a team-based, 13 week-long program for individuals between the ages 18-24. Land Conservation Leaders guide and support Trail or Forestry participants (called Corpsmembers) as they serve on environmental stewardship projects on public lands. Crew Leaders will be enrolled in AmeriCorps—a national community service program.

Land Conservation Leaders will earn up to $1,320.00 biweekly and earn a $4,826.50 scholarship at the same time! The total compensation including biweekly pay and AmeriCorps Education Award is $23,760.

Never had a job outside? Not sure if you like this kind of work? That’s okay! Our goal is to support you with the knowledge and team that you need to be successful. We will provide you with hands-on training related to all projects. All we ask is that you bring your dedication to hard work, a positive attitude, and a commitment to a year you’ll never forget.

Thanks for your consideration,

Tierni Chun (she/her)
