On Friday, the Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) Board awarded an $18,000 Youth Corps grant to the City of Montrose for work in Cerise, Riverbottom and Taviwach parks.

GOCO awards Youth Corps funding through the Colorado Youth Corps Association (CYCA), a statewide coalition of nine accredited corps that train youth, young adults and veterans (ages 14-25) to work on land and water conservation projects. Corps members earn a stipend for their full-time service and an AmeriCorps education award to use toward college or reducing existing student loans. CYCA serves 1,700 young people annually.​..Read the full story, here.
