ATLAS Crew

The Texas Conservation Corps’ ATLAS Crew, in collaboration with the City of Austin, is a youth environmental stewardship program that focuses on local  urban conservation and restoration projects. ATLAS Crew is a full-time, 900 hour term of service for people aged 18-24. This is an Americorps opportunity for young adults interested in working outdoors and in their neighborhood. The ATLAS crew is a team-based program in which a crew of AmeriCorps leaders and members will complete urban conservation and restoration projects in the City of Austin. These crews work locally on a regular schedule, Monday- Friday. Typical projects include habitat restoration, trail construction and maintenance, new park development, wildfire fuel reduction, and park clean-up. A term as a crew member with Texas Conservation Corps is both a challenging and rewarding experience that you will remember for the rest of your life!
