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.

2023 Corpsmember of the Year: JoJo Young (Superior)

Congrats to JoJo Young, the 2023 Boulder County Youth Corps Corpsmember of the Year. As a second-year Corpsmember, JoJo brought their previous experience to a team with many first-year workers. The Superior team worked on a multitude of projects with different objectives, and JoJo’s knowledge of teamwork, tool use, and leadership proved invaluable to the team’s success. JoJo impressed the Youth Corps staff, the team’s sponsor, and their teammates with their consistency throughout the season.

JoJo showed up ready to work and set an example for their fellow Corpsmembers each day, and it translated into the Superior team being one of the most successful teams of the 2023 season. They maintained a positive attitude no matter the circumstances and were selected by their Team Leaders to take on expanded leadership opportunities due to their high level of focus and dedication. They were able to have fun and build a great relationship with the rest of the team and were always willing to volunteer to take on difficult roles. Great work, JoJo!
