BALTIMORE CLEAN STREETS YOUTH PROGRAM
The Clean Streets Youth Employment Program is our latest initiative to address several areas of community development including environmental health, youth employment and civic engagement. We believe in the philosophy that change comes from within. Therefore we engage young students to partake in cleaning up their own community. We provide the logistical oversight, the tools and a small stipend to any young person ages 10 and up that wants to work each weekend. We are providing a tangible incentive for young people to work and participate in cleaning their own community. The private donations that we receive from the general public enable us to provide this incentive.
