ACCC looking for help
Monday, December 20, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano
The Austin Civilian Conservation Corps (ACCC) is up and running, and they are looking for crew members to work on wildfire mitigation projects. The job creation program was formed with federal Covid-19 relief funds in 2020. Now, the city of Austin and American YouthWorks are encouraging anyone from ages 17-35, regardless of experience, to join the crew, where they will be trained and work on wildfire mitigation projects throughout the city of Austin. More information is available at AustinTexas.gov/ACCC.
