We believe that a significant component of citizenship is giving back to your community. Whether providing community service hours to students, engaging citizens in community efforts, or service hours in lieu of penalties, cleanups are a great way to educate people about the problem of Marine Debris while doing something about it. One benefit is that once you see the problem, people change their individual behaviors.
Whether for student community service hours, court ordered community service hours, or civic engagement, VolunteerCleanup.Org can assist with a structure, best practices, and service hour forms. Email Dara@VolunteerCleanup.Org for more info.
