TeamWorks Crew Leader — $330 Signing Bonus, $1,000 Completion Bonus!
TEENS, Inc.
TeamWorks is a conservation-based youth employment program that brings together a mix of young people (ages 15-20) from urban and rural areas to work side by side on crews. Each crew is comprised of 2 adult Crew Leaders, up to 2 Junior Crew Leaders, and 10 Crew Members. One of the most unique aspects of working with TeamWorks is our urban/rural model, with half of each crew hailing from a rural mountain town, and the other half coming from the Denver Metro Area. We make this work by having each rural crew meet in the morning at a specific location in either Nederland, Boulder, Idaho Springs, Bailey or Conifer. The urban-based halves of the crew will meet in the Denver locations of Aurora Central High School or Central Park Station. After gathering at their respective locations in the morning, each half of the crew will drive in a work vehicle to the project site, where they will work as a full team for the day! 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, agency partners, 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!
