Rocky Mountain Youth Corps
Rocky Mountain Youth Corps is a stepping stone to new opportunities. We inspire young adults to make a positive difference in themselves and their communities. Through training and service, Corpsmembers discover their potential for healthy, productive lives. Rocky Mountain Youth Corps (RMYC) provides comprehensive workforce development training and educational enhancement programs to New Mexico's opportunity youth between the ages of 17 and 25. Corpsmembers work on a variety of land conservation, recreation, and historic preservation projects in partnership with local, state, and federal land management agencies. Other Corpsmembers teach environmental education across central New Mexico as a part of our “Youth Ambassador” program. RMYC manages a comprehensive drug and alcohol abuse prevention program in middle and high schools across Taos County. RMYC also manages the Learning Lab, an alternative school for 6th to 12th grade students who need enhanced emotional and academic support before returning to their regular schools.
