Dear Friends of RMYC, We thank you for your continued and steady support of Rocky Mountain Youth Corps. Your commitment toproviding greater opportunities for the futures of our youth participants is especially important andnecessary during this time of difficult economies.Today’s youth and young adults are experiencing a greater disconnect from employment and educationopportunities than most of us have seen in our life-times.Conservation corps across the nation have beengathering to collectively address avenues for positiveand productive lifeskills development for the youngergeneration. Over 175 corps participants were givenemployment, job skills, education opportunities andexperiential lifeskills training through involvement with RMYC’s conservation corps programs in 2011.Sixty-four of these participants received an Ameri-Corps Education Award for higher education on topof their work stipends. These youth and young adults filled their own tool box with numerous usefulskills while also giving back to their community andenvironment through high priority, meaningfulconservation projects.RMYC is also proud of our programs for the younger population – Service Learning Institutefor middle school students, and the Yampa Valley Science School for all the sixth grade students inRoutt County. These programs engage youth inan experiential and real-life way to more deeply connect them to their environment, theirschools, and their value as productive commu-nity members.RMYC is also proud to be a leader amongst youthserving organizations in northwest Colorado by spearheading the Routt County Youth ServicesCoalition, taking a leading role in the PublicLands Service Coalition and serving on the steer-ing committee of President Obama’s America’sGreat Outdoors Initiative”. We could not do all that we do without our many supporters, from project and program partners,to donors and volunteers. Your investment intoday’s youth is a great investment in the future. We are honored to have you on our crew!Lynda StahlGretchen Van De Carr
