Have community-service hours you need to complete for a school, community organization or court requirement? Pioneer Farms offers a supervised program for youths ages 10-18 in which they can achieve their hours and learn about Texas history at the same time.
PROJECTS - School classes, civic and religious groups and community organizations that are looking for community-service and team-building projects to complete are welcome at Pioneer Farms. A variety of projects for all skill sets and ages are available and, as an all-volunteer organization, we always welcome a helping hand. For more details and a list of available projects, e-mail us at PioneerFarmsAustin@gmail.com.
FESTIVALS - From our spooky Halloween show to the Christmas festival to the Austin Family Music Festival to our other events in spring, summer and fall, Pioneer Farms can always use school and community groups looking for community-service hours to help us out. Complimentary admission and other perks are available. For more details and to sign up, e-mail us at PioneerFarmsAustin@gmail.com.
ON-SITE - Youths completing community-service hours for graduation credits or a court are welcome at Pioneer Farms on Saturdays and Sundays, so long as you register in advance at PioneerFarmsAustin@gmail.com. Participants must follow the rules and will be closely supervised. They will help preserve Texas history by doing various chores, most of them outdoors, at our historic sites. Hours will be signed off for as they are worked. Pioneer Farms retains the right to decide which participants to accept or decline, based on attitude and aptitude, among other factors. Slots in this program are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The hands-on history lesson that comes along with this service is an added bonus.
CREDIT - Students completing class projects are welcome at Pioneer Farms on weekends, provided the projects are reviewed and approved in advance at PioneerFarmsAustin@gmail.com. Participants must follow the rules and will be closely supervised. They will help preserve Texas history.
