The TST Crew Member application will be available from March 1 to April 11, 2016 on the County employment web page. Jefferson County will be selecting TST Crew Members through interviews of qualifying candidates. The random drawing/lottery process will no longer be used.
Are you a Jefferson County resident, between the ages of 14 and 18 as of June 7, 2016 and want a rewarding and challenging summer work opportunity? Are you able to commit to working for 8 weeks, from June 14 to August 4, Tuesday through Thursday, with no more than two absences? The work is hard and demanding, but it can be fun and enjoyable, too.Created in 1975, the nationally acclaimed Trail Stewardship Team (TST) has helped thousands of county youth develop a positive work ethic by introducing them to the rewards and realities of the working community. The TST provides much of the physical labor required to maintain and improve natural surface trails, mitigate noxious weeds, and restore natural areas each summer. Each TST worker can expect to cover 200 miles in eight weeks by hiking to and from the job site for trail maintenance. First-year Crew Members will be chosen based on their application, letter of reference, interview, availability, applicable experience, willingness to follow rules and interest in being part of a team.TST Crew Members who successfully completed the 2015 season and would like to return to work in 2016 are required to submit an application, letter of reference, and participate in the interview process.
Applications for TST Crew Members (new and returning) must be submitted through the County employment web page by 5 p.m. on April 11, 2016.
A letter of reference is required from an adult who knows you and is not a family or household member. Ask a teacher, counselor, coach, employer, youth group leader, neighbor, or family friend. If you are unable to provide a letter of reference at the time of application, you can submit your application without the letter and bring it to your interview if selected.
If you are not able to upload the letter of reference with the application it can be mailed to Jeffco Open Space – TST, 700 Jefferson County Pkwy, Suite 100, Golden, CO 80401-6017 – or provided at an interview. Letters mailed in will be matched with the corresponding applications.
