Youth Environmental Education
At Keep Pensacola Beautiful, we believe it’s important to actively pursue a sustainable lifestyle and teach that philosophy to others.
Waste In Place
Waste in Place is a curriculum that was designed by Keep America Beautiful, in coordination with experienced teachers to fit into increasing educational standards and optimize S.T.E.A.M. learning objectives.
Keep Pensacola Beautiful offers 11 of these activities for grades K-8. Our trained staff and volunteers will engage the kids with hands-on projects that focus on litter awareness and prevention, community engagement, recycling habits, and even composting! Our curriculum can be tailored to supplement your lesson plan and education level.
If you would like KPB to bring this program to you, please fill out the interest form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Have a question that you need answered right away? Call us at 850-438-1178 and ask to speak with someone about planning a Waste In Place event!
Youth Advisory Council
Are you a high school student in 10th, 11th or 12th grade? Do you care about improving our community and the health of our environment? If the answer is yes, then KPB’s Youth Advisory Council is for you!
This is an opportunity in Escambia County for high school students to participate in a service-learning and leadership development program. 10 members are given the opportunity to develop and coordinate their own beautification project within their school or community. They may also contribute to Keep Pensacola Beautiful’s programming, participate in training sessions, and visit local municipalities/businesses, while acting as ambassadors and leaders for youth service.
The Youth Council meets once a month from August to May. The term contract is for one year, but these can be extend upon request. Severing on the Youth Council also makes you eligible to serve on the Keep Florida Beautiful Youth Council and/or the Keep America Beautiful Youth Council.
This is a great way to give back and to get service hours. If you would like to apply, hit the button below to download an application. The deadline to apply is July 1st!
