TEENS, Inc. is hiring a TeamWorks Program Director to manage this conservation based youth employment program. TEENS, Inc. is a Nederland, Colorado based non-profit organization with the mission to support, educate and empower youth and their families to make healthy choices and thrive. In 2010, Lincoln Hills Cares teamed up with TEENS, Inc. with the goal of creating a paid educational work experience that would connect youth from different backgrounds to one another and to the mountains of Colorado. TeamWorks, a conservation based work program, strives to develop the next generation of young leaders in a safe, supportive work environment that empowers them to develop confidence, responsibility, work ethic, and new skills. The mission is to connect young people to nature and community.
The first TeamWorks crew consisted of 6 crew members; 3 youth from Denver, and 3 from Nederland. 12 years later TeamWorks has grown significantly, employing 72 Front Range youth on 6 crews based in Denver and Front Range mountain towns. TeamWorks crew members continue to work in diverse teams of urban and rural youth, fostering the development of inclusive communication and leadership skills.
