TEENS, Inc. Youth Corps (TYC)
TEENS, Inc. Youth Corps (formerly MYC) is a summer youth employment program for teens ages 14 – 19. Crews consist of at least 4 teens and one adult supervisor. Since 2005, TEENS, Inc. Youth Corps has treated over 1,700 acres of noxious weeds on public and private land. TEENS, Inc. Youth Corps is partnering with Nederland Area Trails Organization and USFS to complete work on the West Magnolia Trail System, and completed 2 miles of trail maintenance and re-routes in 2017. In 2006, TEENS, Inc. Youth Corps won the Environmental NOVA award from the Boulder Community Foundation for its partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and is also a member of the 21st Century Conservation Service Corps.
Youth employees increase perseverance and resiliency while learning career and life skills including teamwork and collaboration, careful attention to detail, interview skills, and social skills.
TYC is available to hire for your summer projects and can do just about anything that does not involve extensive use of power tools: slash removal, yard clean up, noxious weed removal, painting, etc. The cost is $125 per hour. We guarantee 5 teens and one supervisor.
Here’s a testimonial about the work TYC does:
‘I reassessed the amount of thistle that we have and I think it can be mitigated in a couple of hours by one person so I won’t been needing a crew this year.
It is because of Teens Inc. that I now have a field of wild flowers.’– TYC Customer
