Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County residents ages 14-17 have until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, April 9, to apply for summer jobs with the Boulder County Youth Corps.
"The Boulder County Youth Corps is a great job opportunity for teens and adults who are interested in summer outdoor work. By working on trail maintenance, fire mitigation, noxious weed removal, and other important projects, young people learn skills while also contributing to the preservation of Boulder County’s precious open space,” said Commissioner Claire Levy.
The Boulder County Youth Corps program staff is excited to return to the field for the 2024 season. Both teens and adults can positively impact the Boulder County community this summer.
- Corpsmembers can apply now. Teens must be Boulder County residents between the ages of 14-17 as of the first day of work (June 10).
- Applications for adult positions will be posted soon. Assistant Team Leaders must be 18 or older; Team Leaders must be 21 or older.
Corpsmembers will work 30 hours per week, Monday through Thursday, from June 10 to July 31 on a variety of conservation and stewardship projects including trail construction and maintenance, historic preservation, forest thinning, construction and repair of fencing, landscaping, and removal of noxious weeds.
The Boulder County Youth Corps believes diversity is a key source of strength for our communities and we strive to create a safe and empowering environment for participants from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities. A key element of our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is fielding single-identity affinity crews to support communities historically underserved in the outdoor space. This year, we will field two affinity crews, a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) Crew and a LGBTQ+ Crew. Affinity crews will work on typical Youth Corps projects side-by-side with corpsmembers and leaders who share in their identity.
