Thursday, March 28, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM (CDT)
It's a party, come and take it! Central Texas has been good to Environmental Corps and now it's time to keep on growing. We're proud of over 16 years of engaging young people in conservation training and service. And now we are changin' our name to the Texas Conservation Corps and throwing a party to celebrate! Please join us on March 28th at the Zilker Clubhouse for FREE food, drinks and music sponsored by Johnny Carino's, Twin Liquors, Real Ale Brewing Company, Antone's Record Shop, Ranch Road Printing, and Sweet Leaf Tea.
We welcome you to join us anytime from 5:30-9:30. At 6:00, we’ll hear from community partners and staff about the Texas Conservation Corps. Please carpool, as Zilker Clubhouse has limited parking.
When & Where
Texas Conservation Corps, a program of American YouthWorks
Texas Conservation Corps (TxCC) - Empowers the lives of youth and young adults through conservation education, service and jobs training. Hands-on, skill-based projects on public lands and disaster areas put program participants in front of serious problems of the region, and asks them to be the solution. While successfully educating, training and producing the next generation of leaders in the field, TxCC engages youth as a powerful resource in the conservation of the natural landscape of Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
American YouthWorks is an education and job training organization that has served the Central Texas Community since 1981. Our mission seeks to serve youth who have dropped out of high school; however, we offer programs for youth and young adults, ages 16 to 28 who want to change their lives through education, workforce training, leadership development and service to their country. At AYW, young people combine academics with technical job skills training and gain work experience by solving real community needs through hands-on service projects, such as: building affordable housing, restoring public lands and parks, and disaster relief work.
