COSA TeamWorks Conservation Corps now hiring Denver based crew leaders!

Posted

The TEENS, Inc TeamWorks program is currently hiring flexible, fun, dynamic and experienced crew leaders for our 2021 season! Pay ranges from $17 – $20/hour DOE, and positions are based in Denver, meeting at either Central Park Station or Aurora Central High School.

Lincoln Hills TeamWorks isn’t a one-off summer experience, but instead offers youth an opportunity for a deeper connection with community and the natural world. TeamWorks is a conservation-based youth employment program that brings together a mix of young people (ages 16-20) from urban and rural areas to work side by side on crews. As an organization, our goal is to attract and hire underrepresented youth who would not ordinarily have the opportunity to work on a conservation crew. Crews collaborate with a variety of project partners in the Front Range of Colorado, and have the chance to work with both public land managers as well as non-profit organizations. Teamworks fosters a work environment that is equally fun and supportive, and many of our youth return to work for the program year after year, building solid relationships with one another, their crew leaders, our organization, and the lands they work on.

Crews work 10 hours a day, Mon-Thurs, on an assortment of conservation projects including trail building and maintenance, fire mitigation, watershed restoration, and noxious weed removal, and all participants and leaders return home each night. Crew leaders will have three day weekends to explore the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado, which are easily accessible from everywhere we work!
