Boulder County Youth Corps
Applications accepted for the 2023 Youth Corps season
Team Leader & Assistant Team Leader Positions
Boulder County Parks & Open Space is now accepting applications for Youth Corps Team Leaders and Assistant Team Leaders. Leaders supervise a team of up to 10 adolescents aged 14-17 at a variety of work sites for eight weeks and mentor the development of personal accomplishment, teamwork, and community service with their team members. They work 40 daytime hours per week, Monday through Friday, from June through August.
These positions are a great fit for college students and teachers who would like to fill their summers with outdoor work, but all qualified individuals are encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
Youth Corpsmember Positions
The application deadline for teen Corpsmember positions is Friday, March 31. Corpsmember applicants must be Boulder County residents between the ages of 14-17 as of the first day of work (June 12) and they will start at $13.56/hour. Corpsmembers work 30 hours per week, Monday through Thursday, from June 12 to Aug. 2.
These positions provide an opportunity for teens to develop a sense of community involvement through personal accomplishment, teamwork, and service to the county.
Since 1996, Youth Corps participants 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.
