Applications Reopen in December!

TreeFolks Young Professionals Core Team members volunteer to help plan social, educational, volunteer, and fundraising events to help engage young professionals in planting trees and caring for the environment. Applications for 2022 have closed, but please follow along for ways to get involved!

Kyle Hoskins

Software Consultant

"I work on my computer all day, so I love a chance to get outside, enjoy nature, and play sports (tennis, volleyball, flag football). Unfortunately, I don’t have a place to plant my own trees, but TreeFolks gives me a chance to support planting trees all across Austin!"

Armando Sanchez

Clinical Social Worker

"Trees never fail to mesmerize me. Their beauty and all that they provide the environment blows my mind every time I think about it. While I can’t dedicate all of my time to trees, being outside among them and volunteering with TreeFolks and TreeFolks YP allows me to engage my love, admiration, and passion for them."

Timothy Brown

Project Manager

"I have spent over half of my life outside; I love the outdoors. As an environmental engineer and nature lover, I have always tried to think of creative ways to sustain and enhance our environment. I’m a firm believer that if new ways and approaches are incorporated, huge strides will be made towards the future improvement of the environment. TreeFolks allows me to get creative, use my hands, and get involved in whatever capacity. Since Mother Earth has opened her arms to us, I guess it’s only right that we give back to her."

Lexi Elio

Policy Analyst

"I am passionate about the power of policy to improve quality of life and protect natural resources. While my work provides an abstract understanding of the environment, it is important to me to enjoy our city’s beautiful natural areas and diverse communities, too. TreeFolks offers the opportunity to ground my green advocacy in a like-minded team and get my hands dirty in the best way — planting trees!"

James Odom

Environmental Consultant

"I spend the majority of my free time outside in the many forests and green spaces of central Texas. Volunteering with tree folks provides an opportunity to measurably improve the health of my community and preserve its beauty for years to come."

Rick Hammond

Park Planner

"I’ve always loved being outdoors, immersing myself in nature. I’m grateful to have a job that takes me all over the state, exploring the many state parks that Texas has to offer. TreeFolks allows me to use my skills and give back on a local level."

Jackie Vay

Outdoor Education Specialist

"As an Austin native I have always enjoyed the many green spaces our city has to offer. TreeFolks helps me get outside more and gives me the opportunity to improve our local environment together. I’m excited to be a part of the team!"

Annette Morales

Graphic Designer

"One of the main reasons I fell in love with Austin was its green areas and lakes. I would love to continue contributing to the environment and this city to keep those green areas alive as well as helping plant more trees and encouraging more people to do so. TreeFolks is a perfect organization to help achieve this and thus improve our environment."

Mina Sucur

Software Developer

"I’ve always enjoyed spending time outdoors and in nature, so I’ve been looking for ways to do my part in keeping our world beautiful. TreeFolks gives me the opportunity to make a difference with other tree admirers!"

Margot Piper

Development & Communications Director

"As a native Austinite, self-proclaimed tree hugger, and super-ultra-major admirer of our environment, I feel called to share the joy of our city’s abundant tree canopy. While having been a fan of TreeFolks since the age of seven, I am now currently serving as the organization’s Development Director and experiencing the abundant happiness that comes with caring for the planet!"

Isabelle Riddle

Nonprofit Coordinator

"I currently work for the local non-profit Explore Austin, where I help underserved Austin youth access and appreciate natural spaces and outdoor adventure. It is my goal to one day return to school to study ecology or wildlife biology. I love being outside and breathing in the wonderful world around me, and I want to share this feeling with my fellow humans!"

Danielle Snyder

Educator

"I spend most of my days in the classroom, so I look forward to any chance to get outside and reconnect with nature. Treefolks allows me the opportunity to help serve my community and the environment by planting trees throughout Austin!"

Ted Maas

Land Steward

"My goal is to promote conservation of natural resources, restore structure and function to degraded ecosystems and include the public in these activities as much as possible. Being involved with TreeFolks helps me connect with others that have similar interests while giving me an opportunity to give back to our community."

Garrett Chase

Communications Coordinator

"As the Communications Coordinator for TreeFolks, I spend much of my time connecting with folks in the community around our shared passion for trees and the environment. With a background in politics, advocacy, and communications, I love that Treefolks gives me the opportunity to build connections and help our planet."
