BENEFITING: Forest Guild

EVENT DATE: Jun 04, 2013

THE STORY:

The Forest Guild's Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) crews have worked to conserve and restore New Mexico's National Forests every summer for over 13 years! We offer up to 2 college credits for their work but due to increased tuition fees, can only offer college credit to half our crews. Please chip-in $20, $30, or more to give a rural New Mexican youth (16-19 years old) access to hard earned college credits!

To make it a challenge, if we raise $1250 Guild staff will attempt the rugged Zuni Mountain 50 mile mountain bike ride (http://nmes.wordpress.com/rides/zuni-mountain-100/), if we raise all $2500, Guild staff will go for the full 100 miles of painful forested singletrack!

All proceeds from this will go directly to paying for college credits!

Many of our YCC alumni have cited their summer job with the Forest Guild as a catalyst in helping them get into college, complete their degree, and gain employment at state and federal land management agencies. Many times, they are able to find employment back in their home communities!

Our YCC crews focus on responsibility, safety, leadership, science, and mathematics.
