The mission of Western Mountain Youth Services is to provide opportunities for growth and change through therapy, education, and participation in service.
Western Mountain Youth Services is an outdoor based therapeutic residential treatment program. We are located in the San Luis Valley in south-central Colorado. The program is a level based system with emphasis on individual/group/ family therapy, life skills training, outdoor skill training, education, and community service. The population we serve are adolescents in state custody (13-17) who are seeking change and growth within their lives. Field Staff are responsible for mentoring at-risk adolescents with a focus on teaching coping and life skills as well as facilitating fun and challenging activities while camping in the San Juan Mountains of Southern Colorado.
