Based in Austin, TX - Crew Leaders co-lead a crew of eight individuals to serve with throughout their season.
Crews work both hitch and local project schedules. For hitch projects crews will typically work a 10 days on and 4 days off schedule: leaving on a Monday, and coming back the following Wednesday. At the beginning of the week, the crew will go grocery shopping and purchase food with a budget provided by TxCC. The crews will then work, camp, eat, and live together until the end of their 10 day work cycle. For local projects crews will work a regular 8-5pm, Monday-Friday schedule. During projects, the crews will get to and from their project sites using our vehicles, driven by the crew leaders.
