Crew Leader and Crew Member Positions Offered

The Southwest Conservation Corp's Strike Team Program is an AmeriCorps program that selects young adults, generally ages 18-25, to complete conservation work on public and private land, serving local communities throughout Southwest Colorado. Strike Teams have the unique opportunity to work with watershed partnerships, river restoration groups, and land management agencies.

Strike Teams are small 3-5 person, technical teams lead by 1 leader. Strike teams work on specific projects that are suited to a small crew model, often performing invasive species control, vegetation monitoring, and watershed restoration activities. Programs are residential, with crews camping for 4-10 day periods. These teams focus on career development, offering members and leaders opportunities to enhance their skills while engaging in meaningful conservation work and environmental stewardship. Members are eligible for an AmeriCorps education award upon successful completion of the program.
