Help keep Austin and Houston beautiful on the Austin Texas Land Stewards (ATLAS) Crew and the Houston Environmental Action Team (HEAT) Crew!
These crews work on local projects and have a regular schedule, Monday- Friday.
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. Typical projects include habitat restoration, trail construction and maintenance, new park development, wildfire fuel reduction, and park clean-up. Crew leaders transport crews and equipment in 12-passenger vans, trucks, and trailer hitches; ensure all safety protocols are followed by crew members; teach and support members throughout their term. A service term with Texas Conservation Corps is both a challenging and rewarding experience that you will remember for the rest of your life!
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.
The Texas Conservation Corps’ HEAT Crew focuses on local urban conservation and restoration projects. Typical projects include urban landscaping, public lands improvement, and vegetation management. Other activities include project partner communication and planning, as well as maintaining vehicles, tools, and equipment.
