American YouthWorks provides young people with opportunities to build careers, strengthen communities, and improve the environment through education, on-the-job training and service to others.

  • About Us
    Casa Verde Builders has been recruiting AmeriCorps members to build affordable, energy efficient homes for 23 years. High School and College graduates learn construction skills which empower them to serve families in the Austin community and public parks in the region.
  • Our Impact
    Casa Verde Builders learn construction and green building techniques while earning First Aid/CPR, OSHA 10 and NCCER Core Curriculum certifications. Students put their marketable skills to good use through community service projects, such as repairing homes for elderly/disabled homeowners, or building energy efficient homes for first time home buyers. Corps members also regularly participate in 5 day spike trips to camp and work at public parks in the region.
