The Colorado Youth Corps Association (CYCA) honored its 2014 Corpsmembers of the Year yesterday at the annual Youth Corps Awards Ceremony, held at the Colorado State Capitol. Ben Andersen with the Steamboat Springs Community Youth Corps was recognized, alongside nine other young people representing all corners of the state, for his outstanding contributions to corps’ work on conservation projects last year. Anderson is 15 years old and a sophomore at Steamboat High School. He was a 2nd year CYC Veteran that immediately stood out among his peers as an influential leader. Those involved in youth corps are a critical source of support in conserving and protecting state land, water and energy resources. Thousands of young people gain jobs, job training, life skills, college scholarships, and high school and college credits through their work with youth corps.
