TxCC participants engage in hands-on conservation projects on public lands, coastal regions, National Parks and recreational areas across the Central Southern United States. TxCC crews, as part of the greater AmeriCorps Disaster Response Teams, are trained and are deployed by FEMA to help communities impacted by natural disasters like the recent Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
The Conservation Corps experience builds leadership skills, connection with community, and prepares young people with skills needed to enter the workforce with a strong work ethic and sense of service.
Interested in joining TxCC? We recruit candidates who have a passion for environmental stewardship and working outdoors, with an interest in gaining new skill sets and experience. No previous corps experience is required to join our program.
