About Mile High Youth Corp
The Mile High Youth Corps’ Energy & Water Conservation Program engages young adults, ages 17-24, in providing water and energy efficiency measures to income-qualifying households and non-profit facilities. Earning a bi-weekly stipend and an AmeriCorps education award, young people from all economic backgrounds can afford to serve their community and invest in their own personal growth.
Participants work on small crews with 7-9 members for three months to two years, dependent on enrollment terms. Corpsmembers are technically trained to install energy and water-saving measures including Ultra-High Efficiency Toilets (UHETs), low-flow aerators, low-flow showerheads, programmable thermostats and LED light bulbs. Corpsmembers work with clients to educate about behavioral changes and ways to be environmental stewards in the home. Corpsmembers of the Energy & Water Conservation program gain the customer service skills and technical training necessary for careers in the “green” industry.
