Anti-Graffiti and anti-Litter Program Presentations

Staff provides presentations that include:
  • Discussion on litter and graffiti
  • Services and resources
  • Awareness on the negative effects to the community

School-based presentations educate elementary, middle and high school youth about effects of litter, encourages them to get involved in their community and develops their leadership skills. Presentations are followed by a litter pick-up activity and are great for classroom projects, environmental clubs and after school programs.
