Colorado Youth Corps Association
Commission Competitive Education Awards Program FY 2012
298 members enrolled in Colorado youth corps will complete land, water, and energy conservation service projects focused on trail enhancement and forest health, or participate in public lands internships. Members will also engage in job-readiness, lifeskills, civic engagement, and environmental education activities to advance their preparedness for the world of work. At the conclusion of the program, members will have enhanced 50 miles of trail and improved 150 acres of local, state or federal land. This project addresses the CNCS Focus Area of Environmental Stewardship but will also contribute to the members' development and prepare them for careers and continuing education.
