We break up our programming into several different crew types: Adult Conservation Crews: Members (ages 18-28) will typically work a 10 days on and 4 days off schedule: leaving on a Monday, and coming back the following Wednesday. The crews work, camp, eat, and live together for those 10 days. Projects include trail work, disaster mitigation, disaster response, habitat restoration, invasive species removal, and coastal restoration. Harvey Strike Teams: We will have two teams of five based in Houston to repair homes affected by Hurricane Harvey. Youth Programming: We have summer youth crews, ages 14-20, that operate out of our Houston & Austin sites. They complete local conservation work on public lands. Individual Placements: We provide several of our partners (San Antonio Missions, Davy Crockett National Forest) with individual placement AmeriCorps members that spend the duration of their term at the partner site.
