Become a YM Leader for Hiking, Backpacking, Biking (Road and Mountain), Paddling, Winter hikes, and/or Socials, or write articles for the Maine Chapter Wilderness Matters Newsletter. You can start the process of becoming a leader anytime of the year and you choose how little or how much you want to get involved. The Young Members (YM) focus is to get young folks in their 20's and 30's, and young at heart, involved in AMC activities: socialization, recreation, and conservation. We are hoping to increase young membership in the AMC and to ensure that the Maine Chapter remains strong and active well into the future. The Young Members Committee will plan workshops, trips, and events geared towards specific interests, while also working with other AMC committees and outing clubs on Maine's college campuses.
