Regional Partner Organization

RPO is a project of the New Mexico Forum for Youth in Communities. For the ninth year in a row, AppleTree has been serving as one of the ten state-wide regional partner organizations for the NMFYC. As a regional partner, AppleTree receives organizational, developmental, and technical assistance. In return, AppleTree is able to provide training to establish, support, and expand positive youth development in Sierra County. AppleTree is currently investing in youth leadership through the Sierra County Youth and Education Council, Teen Outreach Program, and various Service Learning Projects. As an RPO, AppleTree works with the New Mexico After school Alliance and Lights on After School. Through NMFYC, AppleTree is also able to receive Americorps* VISTA volunteers.
