The Colorado State Office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has collaborated with Qualified Youth and Conservation Corps, as authorized by the Public Lands Corps Act (PLC), to accomplish conservation projects for numerous years.
This program's projects provide employment for participants
and opportunities to learn about and gain work experience in public lands and natural resources management while promoting long-term interest in public lands stewardship and the BLM.
BLM Colorado's Youth Program assists federal agencies with diversifying the workforce while exposing participants to the complex cultural and natural resource issues faced by National Conservation Lands managers.
BLM Colorado partners with qualified youth and conservation corps to engage individuals between the ages of 16 and 30 (inclusive) and veterans up to age 35 (inclusive) including tribal members.
Young people are recruited from local communities to assist with conservation projects that protect and promote multiple-use on public lands.Please visit www.grants.gov to download a full copy of the Notice of Funding Opportunity, application, instructions, and templates.
