Mile High Youth Corps

Empowering the Next Generations

Mile High Youth Corps unites youth with community to benefit all

Mile High Youth Corps is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that gives youth ages 16 to 24 a chance to earn an income and learn hands-on job skills while serving in their communities. In its first year, 20 youth served Denver neighborhoods through a single 10-week program. Today, MHYC engages over 200 youth (called Corpsmembers) every year through several comprehensive programs that integrate paid work experience on community service projects with leadership development, career exploration and education. During its twenty-two year history, Mile High Youth Corps has grown from a small, seasonal, neighborhood-based organization to a comprehensive, year-round, regional program serving 15 counties from two regional offices, Metro Denver and the Southern Front Range. Their mission is to help youth make a difference in themselves and their community through meaningful service opportunities and educational experiences.
