Youth Corps

Celebrated Our 20th Season

We are proud to have celebrated our 20th season this year!

In The Beginning

Our program started in 1996 as the Boulder County Service Corps. That first season had 100 Corpsmembers who were paid $4.25 an hour and who were placed on 10 teams. Compare that to this year's 155 Corpsmembers who started at $8.23 an hour and who worked on 18 different teams all over Boulder County. Read more about the First Youth Corps Season.

About The Program

The Youth Corps provides opportunities for Boulder County teens to develop a sense of community involvement through personal accomplishment, teamwork and service to the county. Since 1996, participants, aged 14-17, have been completing projects for Boulder County departments, municipalities and towns.

Corpsmembers benefit by learning strong work habits, new skills and the value of environmental and civic stewardship. County departments, municipalities and towns benefit from the maintenance projects and tangible products such as new trails built by Corpsmembers each summer.
