Youth Resources

Changing attitudes and influencing behavior are brought about most effectively using a combination of methods, including experiential learning. Keep America Beautiful has developed guidebooks — for students, educators or other project leaders — that can help lead the next generation of community stewards through the process of service- and project-based learning.

Waste in Place Service & Project-Based Learning (Secondary Education)

These guides for 7th-12th graders were created to promote youth-led action for change with individuals joining Keep America Beautiful and our network of community-based affiliates in national events and through the creation of service projects that reflect the needs of an individual’s community.
