Spark the Future for New Mexico Youth

As the year comes to a close, we reflect on the transformative experiences that Rocky Mountain Youth Corps (RMYC) has provided for the youth and young adults of New Mexico. We also celebrate the support of friends like you who have helped us make a difference in the lives of these individuals. Now, as we look ahead to the coming year, we invite you to continue this incredible journey with us through a meaningful donation that will further empower New Mexico's youth.

The pandemic's impact on youth and young adults, with many missing critical social skill development due to school disruptions, requires our support, and RMYC's team-based model can aid in their recovery. In communities hit hard by the pandemic, resilience and growth are essential. Last year, New Mexico saw its largest wildfire ever, and ongoing trends demand resilient forests and thriving communities. RMYC not only addresses these landscapes but also cultivates the next generation of environmental professionals. Your support is crucial in continuing these vital efforts.

Kasey Brooke Romero has exemplified the transformative power of our programs. As a Crew Supervisor on the Taos Pueblo Conservation Crew, she contributed to rebuilding the outer wall that protects the pueblo and shared the wisdom and traditions of her people. Kasey now serves as an AmeriCorps Peer Mentor in our Public Health Prevention Program, supporting high school students with access to mental health resources. Her journey from mentee to mentor is a testament to the impact we can create together.

Your support and partnership can empower more young individuals like Kasey and foster growth in our communities and landscapes. The challenges may be great, but so is our determination to make a lasting difference. As the year draws to a close, we invite you to join us in shaping a brighter future.

Your donation will have a profound impact on the lives of the youth, the communities, and the landscapes we serve. We sincerely thank you for your ongoing support, and together, we can make a positive change.
