YouthBuild Grad 1

Western State Colorado University Partnership


Western State Colorado University degree-seeking students can co-enroll in a CYCA-accredited youth corps and earn up to six internship credits while serving in the corps. Conversely, youth corps staff and members who are not current WSCU students can enroll in the university’s “Environmental Writing” course through the Extended Studies department. WSCU is also extending its distance graduate certificate and new Master’s in Environmental Management degree program to youth corps staff and interns.

Dr. John Hausdoerffer, WSCU’s director of the Center of Environmental Studies said, “This partnership will help our students get the real-world experience they need to be capable, informed professionals, as well as inspire those not yet engaged in environmental studies to consider the field. We have been seeking ways to incorporate hands-on service into our department, and the youth corps model is a great fit.”
