Options to extend service, reenroll in alternative AmeriCorps service commitment, and promotions to ACE staff position are all possible based on available vacancies and performance.

As a member of ACE crew, AmeriCorps Team Leaders (ATLs) assist Crew Leaders in the logistics and administration of teams of Conservation Corps members performing environmental conservation and restoration projects throughout the state of California. The ACE Pacific West Division is also able to travel to neighboring states if project assignments demand. ATLs provide leadership to corpsmembers, training in technical skills and lead partial teams of corpsmembers. ATLs also may train corpsmembers in conservation work skills and outdoor living skills. Work projects are almost exclusively outdoors, involve 80 hours (eight 10-hour days) over 2 week trips, of strenuous physical labor in all weather conditions and climates, and may involve backcountry camping for several days at a time in remote wilderness locations.
