Boulder County residents ages 14-17 can now apply for summer jobs with the Youth Corps. Girls
especially are encouraged to apply. Applications are available online and at counseling offices in
schools. The deadline to submit an application is Friday, March 25.
The Youth Corps offers one of the best first job opportunities available in Boulder County. 160
teenagers will be hired to work 30 hours a week, Monday through Thursday, from June 13 to
August 3 on a variety of community service projects. Projects will include such activities as trail
construction and maintenance, historic preservation, forest thinning, construction and repair of
fencing, landscaping and removal of Russian olive trees and noxious weeds.
Corpsmembers will earn a starting hourly wage of $8.31, with the possibility of earning a $100
bonus at the end of the program based on merit and strong attendance.
“My first year in the Youth Corps changed my life and was where I met some of my best
friends,” one of last summer’s Corpsmembers said of the experience.
