2020 Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, Conservation Corps: Big Agnes Gear Assistance Application
Rocky Mountain Youth Corps is excited to announce that we have gained access to tents, sleeping bags, and sleeping pads to assist participants who encounter hardship in accepting a term of service with RMYC. Gear has been made available through a generous show of support form Big Agnes, Inc.

This gear sponsorship has been designed to assist under-represented groups who serve with RMYC. Anyone serving a term with RMYC is welcome to apply. We will prioritize offering assistance to people facing financial adversity and from members of communities who are typically under-represented at Rocky Mountain Youth Corps. Gear awarded is intended to allow RMYC participants to fully meet the essential needs of their term of service.

Things to Consider:
RMYC is dedicated to supporting participant success in our program. Meals, transportation, and group gear will be provided during your employment with us. We do ask you that you provide your own personal gear. RMYC will loan gear to participants, dependent on inventory and individual needs.

While employed, you are eligible for expert Pro-deals, or discounted gear through online platforms: Expertcity and Big Agnes. Pro-deals usually involve new, off-season gear for purchase at about 30-70% of the retail price. Pro-deals cannot be shared with others; you can only purchase items for yourself. Previously used items can be found at a discounted rate through local thrift stores and publicly available outdoor clearance stores online (e.g. Steapandcheap.com). If you are interested in investing in your own gear, consider all of your options, your gear need, and potential future use.
To Apply:
1) Applications will not be considered until a member has accepted the Conservation Corps (ages 18+) position offered by RMYC.

2) The selection committee must receive a complete application before making decisions. If you are unable to complete the on-line version or need assistance with completing it, please contact Christina at celderkin@rockymountainyouthcorps.com or by calling (970) 879-2135 ext 101.

3) Gear Assistance applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Please allow the selection committee two weeks to review your application. Please be sure to check your email (spam/junk folder as well) as you will be notified through email of your gear award.

4) The gear assistance awards will be competitive and are limited, so be sure to include any relevant details of why you should be considered as a candidate for out gear assistance program. Big Agnes Gear Assistance grantees will be determined and notified by April 10, 2020.

Again, please note that this is gear necessary to complete your RMYC term of service. If you have any questions, please contact Christina at celderkin@rockymountainyouthcorps.com or by calling (970) 879-2135 ext 101.
I have read the above information and notified RMYC of my position acceptance. I would like to complete an application. *
