The volunteers will help to improve their public lands and the beach coast, understand the cause and effect of illegal dumping and littering on the environment and our community, develop a responsible attitude and habits to protect the beauty of our island environment by disposing of waste properly and thinking about limiting the amount of waste we generate. Volunteers will be able to disseminate information from the experience and serve as positive role models to help spread awareness of responsible waste disposal and cultivate recycling habits.
Knowledge/Skills/Experience Desired: -- - Ability to follow directions and safety protocols. - Willingness to learn new things. Everyone is welcome. Discuss job safety prior to the clean-up activity. Volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes. Please bring a refillable water bottle, as we will have a location for you to fill it and stay hydrated. We also recommend that you wear a hat, sunscreen, and a long sleeved shirt to protect you from sun exposure.The attached Waiver forms must be signed if students under 18 will not be attending with their parents. Sign in with Mrs. Danieli upon arrival and out at the end of the project.
Students will earn 1 hour for every hour of service action involved in the cleanup. They will earn their additional 6th hour upon completion of their reflection. Sample reflection questions: In what way was the Coastal Cleanup a service activity? What did you learn? (Example: what kinds of trash did you clean up? What damage does trash to do to the land and the ocean?) What message will you give to others about littering and pollution? Why should we care about littering?
Plan on getting dirty. It will most likely be hot, but it may also rain on us. You may be exposed to sharp glass and metal, but we are providing gloves for your protection.
Issue AreaPollution; littering; community and island pride
