RMYC Launches “30 Days for 30 Years” Social Campaign to Ring in 30th Anniversary 


There’ll soon be plenty more accolades rolling in for Rocky Mountain Youth Corps as the nonprofit rolls out its “30 Days for 30 Years” social campaign in honor of its 30th anniversary. Spearheaded by programs manager Ryan Banks, the story-telling campaign calls upon alumni to submit a short video touching upon how RMYC impacted their life, with the organization posting the best submissions every day of September, on up to its “A Toast to Trails & Tales” 30th Anniversary Celebration Saturday, Sept. 30, at the heralded Steamboat Grand Hotel. 

“Each of the 30 days of September will feature a different story of an RMYC crew member, intern, science school student, project partner, program partner, staff member, or board member,” says Banks. “To that end, we’re reaching out to alumni crew members and interns to gather their stories of how RMYC affected their lives.”

Some of the videos, he adds, will also be featured at the Sept. 30 celebration event.

RMYC is engaging its alumni to participate by reaching out to them through social media, email and other avenues to encourage them to send in their stories. RMYC will then edit these testimonials down to one minute in length (though originals can be as long as 3 minutes. Video content ideas include alumni telling viewers how RMYC impacted their life,  project partners discussing how partnering with RMYC made a difference, and experiences submitters had with RMYC that evoked passion, love or unity. 

Video submissions should be uploaded to YouTube or saved to a personal DropBox or Google Drive, with the link sent to or For more information, visit . 

“It should be a great way to help capture the collective spirit or our alumni and partners from the past 30 years as we look ahead to the next three decades,” says RMYC executive director Gretchen Van De Carr. “We’re looking forward to using it as a way to reconnect with all our past alumni and other associates while spreading the word about our valuable tradition of engaging youth in the outdoors while linking community, education and environment through service.”
