Local Adult Crews

Local adult crews work on in-community projects focused on local needs and priorities. Local crews contribute directly to the communities and nations in which they are based while acquiring professional experience and training.

Serve your community, your land

Ancestral Lands Conservation Corps (ALCC) operates in-community programming in Acoma Pueblo, Zuni Pueblo, Hopi Nation, Navajo Nation, and Albuquerque, NM. Our offices are managed by members of the tribal communities in which they are based. For ALCC, this responsibility to the communities with which we work is a central guiding principle.

Local adult crews consist of young adults, ages 18-30 (dependent on position) who work in collaboration with in-community partners to meet community needs. Projects include agriculture and food distribution, firewood supply, interpretive and educational services, and maintenance of public areas.


High School Equivalency Degree Program

In Albuquerque, ALCC operates a High School Equivalency Degree (HSED) opportunity for members to pursue and attain their HSED while receiving a weekly living stipend and AmeriCorps Education Award (upon term completion). Please review the positions carefully as every office's programming is unique to its base location. Note: local crews do not camp (unlike Adult Conservation Crews). ALCC does not provide housing
