Forest Stewards Youth Corps


Since its inception in the 1990s, the Guild FSYC program has employed over 500 youth, achieved 200,000 hours of conservation service and education, awarded over 200 hours of college credit, and invested over $3 million in rural New Mexico communities. Corps members have gone on to build successful careers in natural resource management and become strong leaders in their communities. The mission of this youth 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.

The Forest Stewards Guild would like to thank all of our 2017 sponsers, funders, and supporters!
