Lincoln Hills TeamWorks
Lincoln Hills TeamWorks is a collaborative creation of TEENS, Inc. and Lincoln Hills Cares. TeamWorks fuels intrinsic motivation, personal accountability, communication and collaboration, scientific reasoning and critical thinking in the youth we work with to propel them toward a successful academic and professional path. Taking place on the gorgeous property of Lincoln Hills in Gilpin County, TeamWorks is an eight week long summer employment program. The program hires youth from both the Peak-to-Peak Region and the Denver metro area to participate in conservation work and noxious weed removal, develop job readiness skills such as resume building and interview skills, and create and execute a scientifically-based project meant to conserve and enhance the natural environment. All participants receive a $1000 scholarship for post- secondary education that is renewable if participants maintain a B average.
