"IT'S MORE LIKE A SECOND FAMILY TO ME. This is how dedicated I am: I wake up at 4:30 in the morning to ride the bus, get here at 7:30, and usually get home around 6:30, 7:30, depending on what time we get off. There's really good influences here, there's really good people here. I'm gonna stay here as long as I can, I love this place. I'm making some pretty good progress here." -Dominick, Crew Member

"I GREW UP IN A VILLAGE NEAR TAOS, New Mexico. When I was 13 I moved to Denver, where I became involved with street gangs, and because of that I was incarcerated for 12 years. Upon my release, I became involved in the food justice movement. I’m now actually working in a field that has helped me find my life path. I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to be able to work with SCC and La Plazita. I’ve been able to see the beauty and history of my state and I’ve realized how much I enjoy being and working outdoors with my fellow crew members. In the future I’d like to be able to continue working with the Barrio Youth Corps. I believe that a degree in environmental sciences may help me continue my success with the conservation corps." -Loren, Crew Leader 16
