The Problem

Missouri Girls Town Foundation, Inc. wants to empower youth in our community to take active steps towards creating a healthier and safer environment on our campus and in surrounding areas.

Our Plan

This service learning project will introduce the importance of creating a cleaner and safer environment for people, plants, and wildlife on our campus and in the community. By integrating Missouri Girls Town's longstanding focus on life-skills training, youth will have the opportunity to not only interact with nature, but learn about their impact on the environment through litter disposal and recycling projects. Participants will be challenged to help eradicate litter and waste in one of two zones (either Zone #1-Campus, or Zone #2- Community). Gloves and safety wear will be provided to ensure participant safety. Each participant will have the opportunity to learn about the importance of creating a healthy, clean, and safe environment for all. The project will culminate with a celebration for all of the participants efforts in reaching our goal of creating a cleaner environment. This project will be part of an ongoing effort to introduce more service learning opportunities on Missouri Girls Town's campus.
