Crew Leader Job Description

YCC Trainer Job Description

The Family YMCA has been awarded a grant from the New Mexico Youth Conservation Corps to employ youth ages 14 to 25 for trail work during the Summer of 2018. Approximately 27 crew members and three leaders (must have experience) will be employed to improve several local community foot and bike paths. Applications are available now and must be turned in by March 12, 8 am. Youth must be unemployed at the time of hire and be New Mexico residents.

In 2017, The Family YMCA partnered with Bandelier National Monument, the Volunteer Task Force, Delle Foundation, UNM-LA and Pajarito Trail Fest to hold a summer jobs program for youth ages 16-24. The work provided service-learning and environmental education opportunities, including a college credit.

From 2009 to 2016, the state of New Mexico's Youth Conservation Corps provided funding to the Y to hire TRAIL crews to improve existing footpaths damaged by recent fires and to create new sustainable trails. The funding for 2018 continues this important work.
