Mile High Youth Corps’ BIPOC Affinity Crew is for young adults who identify as Black, Indigenous, or as a person of color. At Mile High Youth Corps, BIPOC-identifying participants (called Corpsmembers) gain professional experience in the natural resources industry while working in a safe and supportive learning environment.

Position Description :

The U.S Fish & Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management and other land and natural resource management agencies have identified diversity and inclusion as strategic priorities. Mile High Youth Corps’ intention is to support these goals by creating more opportunities in the field for young people of color. We believe creating this opportunity is just one of the many important steps in dismantling the barriers of systemic racism that exist in the natural resources industry.

 

Join us for our 2022 Fall BIPOC Affinity Trail or Forestry Crew! Working on the BIPOC Affinity Crew gives both novice and experienced Corpsmembers the space to develop and strengthen skills and knowledge in natural resources and environmental stewardship. The BIPOC Affinity Crew at Mile High Youth Corps allows people who identify as BIack, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, or are a part of another multi-cultural or multi-racial community to share stories, discuss common challenges, innovate solutions, and use their voice as a member of a 7-9 person crew. Mile High Youth Corps is committed to developing future leaders and making America’s public lands a welcoming place for everyone to work and recreate regardless of race.

The Fall Trail or Forestry Program is a team-based, 13 week-long program for individuals between the ages 18-24. Trail or Forestry Corpsmembers serve on environmental stewardship projects on public lands throughout the Denver metro area. Corpsmembers will be enrolled in AmeriCorps—a national community service program
