Fight Climate Change in Your Community
Make a difference, and make a better future for yourself at Mile High Youth Corps.
We are a group of young people who are focused on combatting Climate Change and educating ourselves on the issues that face our community.
This is not like other jobs.
Join us for our 2022 Summer Climate Corps- Energy & Water Conservation program! The Energy & Water Conservation program (E&W) is a team-based, 10 or 14 week-long program for individuals between the ages 18-24. E&W participants (called Corpsmembers) serve on community-based energy and water conservation projects throughout the Denver metro area. Corpsmembers will be enrolled in AmeriCorps—a national community service program.
Corpsmembers will earn up to $6,842.90 for a 10-week term, or $9,378.60 for a 14-week term.
Never had a job in conservation before? Not sure if you like this kind of work? That’s okay! Our goal is to support you with the knowledge and team that you need to be successful. We will provide you with hands-on training and certificates related to all projects.
All we ask is that you bring your dedication to hard work, a positive attitude, and a commitment to a service term you’ll never forget.
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.
