Forest Stewards Youth Corps
The FSYC program develops a new generation of skilled workers, educated and active citizens, and future community leaders.
The mission of the Forest Stewards Youth Corps program is to provide career training in natural resources for 16-19 year olds from forest dependent communities in New Mexico that have few employment opportunities.
Our fire and fuels crew provides similar, advanced opportunities for 18-25 year olds.
