About

MISSION STATEMENT:

Rocky Mountain Youth Corps engages youth in the outdoors, inspiring them to use their strengths and potential to lead healthy, productive lives.  We teach responsibility for self, community and environment through teamwork, service and experiential education.

 

OVERVIEW:

RMYC engages the strength and potential of youth and young adults to make a difference in themselves and their community through meaningful service opportunities, educational experiences, and group recreational activities.  RMYC strives to meet the needs of the communities of northwest Colorado by offering a variety of programs and services for youth ages 10-25 years.  Our programs include the Conservation Corps and the Community Youth Corps in cooperation with the City of Steamboat Springs, Yampa Valley Science School, Service Learning Corps, and the Historic Preservation Corps. RMYC is one of over 100 member corps of The Corps Network, and is one of ten accredited youth corps with the Colorado Youth Corps Association. 

HISTORY:

Rocky Mountain Youth Corps (RMYC) was established in 1993 by the City of Steamboat Springs in response to a community demand for more youth employment, educational, and recreational opportunities.  In 1999, RMYC obtained 501(c)3 status enabling us to serve a greater geographic area from which to recruit youth and procure projects, and greater capacity for programmatic expansion in response to fluctuating demands.  The basic mission and purpose have not changed over time, but have been reinforced and expanded to achieve greater success.
