Los Valles Office: Salida, CO and the San Luis Valley, Colorado

The Los Valles region has both high school crews that are commuter crews and camping crews (crews camp during the work week and have the weekends off).The crews operating out of the Los Valles Region are local crews. Our crews are sponsored by counties in our region and so our students are from the counties/regions where we serve. 
The Salida office has two high school sessions during 2017; each are 4 weeks long. The first session begins June 5, 2017 and ends June 30, 2017. The second session begins July 10, 2017 and ends August 4, 2017. 

High school crew members work on teams of 6-10 members with 2 crew leaders and do a wide-range of project work from trail-building, restoration, fence building, invasive species removal, road and bridge work and trash pick-up and beautification around our local towns. All Los Valles high school crews participate in 4 days of work during the work week and 1 day of education and adventure. Crews learn about the ecology and geology of the area, about our national parks and forests and about the natural and human history of the area where we live and work. It is a fun-filled and service oriented month for members and leaders and the important work our high school students do each summer would not get done without our crews.

Crew members are ages 14-18, are  AmeriCorps members, and receive a weekly stipend of $275 per week and an AmeriCorps education award at the end of their service term.  Come join our awesome high school crew program and gain skills, experience, and make a difference!
