Rocky Mountain Youth Corps
121 RMYC AmeriCorps members, local youth ages 16-25, will improve their economic opportunities through National Service. Members reach this goal across northern New Mexico through successful completion of projects in environmental restoration, wildfire disaster mitigation, and educational mentoring. At the end of the project, 90% of the RMYC AmeriCorps Members will transition into employment or enroll in post-secondary education and will have earned college credits leading to stronger employability. CNCS' investment of $ 453,486 is matched with $ 603,359 and meets CNCS' priorities of disaster mitigation, environmental stewardship, education and economic opportunity.
