Community Cleanup. Youth in Action Bulletin, Number 9.
Department of Justice, Washington, DC. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.; National Crime Prevention Council, Washington, DC.
Every community has areas--public parks, schoolyards, sidewalks--that are neglected, vandalized, or just plain run down. Young people can help clean up those places by getting involved in a community cleanup project. As explained in this bulletin, a community cleanup is a project in which volunteers of all ages work together to spruce up a chosen site. The bulletin addresses the following topics: "What Is a Community Cleanup?"; "What Does a Community Cleanup Do To Prevent Crime?"; "What Does It Take To Start a Community Cleanup?"; "What Does It Take To Keep a Community Cleanup Going?"; "What Are Some of the Challenges of a Community Cleanup?"; "What Are Some of the Rewards of a Community Cleanup?"; and "How Can the Cleanup Be Evaluated?" The bulletin lists several organizations that can provide further information. (BT)
