Help clean the Community

Because of the unique location of our city, we have different responsibilities in regards to keeping it clean. Our trash and other waste, has an immediate impact on ecosystems around us. Our oceans play a vital role in many important processes on our planet. Keeping it clean is the least we can do to contribute to the world.

You can do this in town by cleaning up beaches, local rivers and the city itself. Youth Odyssey plays it’s part by taking a group of Youth Leaders and cleaning local parks and marinas. There are other organizations that you can be a part of waiting for you to join. You can visit here for city opportunities, or here for a personal ocean clean up day with your group.


There are many organizations that allow people to volunteer. Of course with the current situations we are all in. It may look a little different for everyone, but there are still missions that need to be completed. So here are some options for places you can volunteer. It will not only allow you to lend a helping hand to your community, but it will make you feel better as well. In addition, you don’t have to do it alone.
