Rocky Mountain Youth Corps needs volunteers
Rocky Mountain Youth Corps is searching for professionals willing to share life stories and lessons to teens and young adults. Interested adults, who are called Field-Based Workshop Volunteers, meet RMYC crews in an outdoor setting for a fireside chat of sorts. The crews will develop questions for the volunteers, so workshop presenters should be prepared to provide answers on how he or she came to be an expert in a particular field and what education choices were made in the process. Volunteers also should come prepared to be outdoors by bringing appropriate clothing, gear and water.
To volunteer or for more information, call Sheila Wright at 879-2135 or visit http://www.rockymountainyouthcorps.org.
