What We Do

Environmental Justice

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.
