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 AmeriCorps term of service for people aged 18-24 who are local to the Austin area and have not been enrolled in school or working full-time for the past 6 months. On an ATLAS Crew, you’ll serve as an AmeriCorps member with your team to complete urban conservation and restoration projects in the City of Austin. These crews work locally in the Austin area 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!
