Community Cleanup
(NCJ 171690) July 1999
OJJDP Youth in Action Series, Bulletin, 6 page(s)
Defines community cleanup projects as those that bring together volunteers to clean, repair, and improve public spaces or other areas that have been neglected, vandalized, or misused. This Youth in Action Bulletin also explains how youth can start these projects and the special challenges and rewards of cleanups. After supplying tips on how to evaluate community cleanup projects (such as examining whether cleaned-up spaces are used more by the community), the Bulletin lists organizations that youth may contact for additional information. The Bulletin's writing and format are geared to youth.
