The Boys and Girls Club Yukon knows that part of a healthy childhood is making sure they feel they belong, not only within peer groups, but also in the community. Our programming includes community stewardship, so that children and youth learn to respect their community and develop a sense of belonging.
A major part of this goal is achieved in our Community Clean Up programming. This programming can range from regular garbage pick-up treks through our neighbourhood to seed bombing excursions to our organized community clean up days. These activities help youth to feel a sense of ownership for their neighbourhoods.
With the help of local business owners and politicians we regularly organize Community Clean Up Days. These trips include a group of youth that travel to a park or other public location and with the help of our sponsor clean, repair and revitalize the location.
If you are interested in either leading or sponsoring a Community Clean Up Day please contact us!
