The C.R.E.W. offers teens and young adults the opportunity for hands-on work in the great outdoors.  With projects that include wildfire prevention, habitat restoration, and trail maintenance, the work is hard and its impacts are both rewarding and enduring. 

Since 1991, The C.R.E.W. has been a leader in employment development for young people through environmental work.  We invite you to explore these pages and learn more about our people, our projects, and our partners in the Ojai Valley and throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.


The C.R.E.W. provides employment and leadership training to teens and young adults through hands-on environmental work.  Since 1991, C.R.E.W. members work year-round to maintain trails, restore habitats, and reduce the risk of wildfire, while building skills and developing relationships that last a lifetime.
