Rocky Mountain Youth Corps is a stepping stone to new opportunities. We inspire young adults to make a positive difference in themselves and their communities. Through training and service, Corpsmembers discover their potential for healthy, productive lives.


Rocky Mountain Youth Corps envisions a world where all generations support one another; a world where young adults actively respond and adapt to an ever changing environment, inspiring local and global communities to reach their full potential in the 21st century.

Strategic Plan

Five ‘strategic initiatives’ serve as the pillars of our plan:

Creating stronger pathways for Corpsmember success as we work to strengthen transitional support services to each participating Corpsmember

Helping the organization standardize and organize our current operational systems and practices

Improving program quality and diversity in response to the needs in the community, with focus on improving project quality, increasing supervisor training, incorporating greater cultural sensitivity and regional land acknowledgements into daily practice, and creating criteria for new program development

Better engaging the community in our vision and mission as we build a framework for creating greater presence and representation of our program impacts within the communities served, on all levels of leadership, programming and support

Guiding us to better build and sustain staff capacity in the form of salary evaluation, providing ongoing training and competency development opportunities, and stewarding career growth and development opportunities throughout the organization

“I came from and was on a path of destruction and was not surrounded by people like you; good examples. I used to live in a lot of fear and you taught me how not to do that, even standing up here.”
