Lead a youth cleanup!

Spend some quality time outside with your friends while protecting wildlife. Suitable for all age levels and a great leadership opportunity.





Select a date and location to lead a cleanup with your group. During your cleanup, youth become citizen scientists and track the kinds of litter they find, all while being outside and protecting wildlife! Online resources are provided to walk you through all the steps, before, during and even after your cleanup. Have any questions? We’re here to help! shorelinecleanup@ocean.org or 1-877-427-2422

I want to lead a youth cleanup

Site Coordinators need to be 19+.

Under 19? You can still be a cleanup hero. You'll just need a responsible adult to register the cleanup and attend with you on the day.




I’ve been cleaning shorelines since 2011 and it is really nice to see people asking us about our next cleanup because they felt so empowered to improve our fragile waterways and environment.
