Mission Statement: 

Rocky Mountain Youth Corps inspires youth to make a difference in themselves and their communities. Through training and team service, RMYC is a stepping stone to new opportunities.


RMYC works with over 120 young people annually ages 16 to 25 years old. Our graduates are documented to have success in continuing education, job placement and higher retention and earnings than their peers not involved in youth corps programming. Under the guidance of an experienced crew supervisor and strong RMYC Training Department, participants are placed in structured learning curriculum which encompasses employment skills, stackable credentials, GED instruction, individualized counseling, career exploration, and dual or concurrent credit through UNM-Taos.

RMYC divides its participants into youth crews based on the type of community projects addressed; the Conservation Program and Energy Efficiency Program. Conservation crews will reduce the risk of wildfire, build trails and improve public lands infrastructure, while Energy Efficiency crews focus on weatherization and retrofitting of households of elderly and low income families.

Rocky Mountain Youth Corps is a recognized AmeriCorps program with 21st CSC status with Department of Interior and USDA/Forest Service.
