Mile High Youth Corps’ Gender Affinity Crew is for people of underrepresented gender identities, including transgender and gender non-conforming individuals and cis women. At Mile High Youth Corps, Gender Spectrum Affinity crew 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 all gender identities. We believe creating this opportunity is just one of the many important steps in dismantling the barriers that have prevented natural resource management from being an inclusive field.

Working on the Gender Spectrum Affinity Crew gives both novice and experienced Corpsmembers the space to develop and strengthen skills and knowledge in natural resources and environmental stewardship. The Gender Spectrum Affinity Crew at Mile High Youth Corps allows people of underrepresented gender identities 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.
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
