What We Do
We believe that youth are the key to achieving environmental justice. Our youth-led community clean up efforts removes trash from urban communities and important urban water bodies that impact the Gulf of Mexico. Youth are paid a stipend to engage in these urban water cleanup efforts.
Future Urban Water & Community Leader youth benefit from educational trips and/or career fairs to gain mentorship, knowledge, and exposure.
With your support, we can support more future leaders.
