smith_parcParc Smith (Essential 2014) Executive Director of American YouthWorks in Austin received one of the five “Tom Harkin Excellence in AmeriCorps Awards.” In 2012, American YouthWorks launched their Texas Conservation Corps and corresponding Emergency Response Team, which include teams of AmeriCorps members that are trained and ready for rapid deployment in response to disasters across Texas. Without these critical program changes, American YouthWorks would not have had the swift and impactful response to this year’s Texas floods.
