Keep Coppell Beautiful (KCB), an affiliate of Keep Texas Beautiful, is a committee that organizes opportunities to preserve and beautify our community through waste reduction, litter prevention, beautification, and environmental stewardship. This past January we saw the beginning of a new student-led committee for Keep Coppell Beautiful; Keep Coppell Beautiful Teens.
The KCB Teen committee requires a five-month commitment from the teens. During that time, the students volunteer their time for nature-based education projects and outreach throughout Coppell. This inaugural group of teens hosted a variety of educational programs and beautification projects during the past five months including a bird-themed Wild Day at the Biodiversity Education Center, cleaning up Coppell Nature Park and Andrew Brown East Park, and hosting an outreach booth about honey bees at the Coppell Farmers Market. This first phase of young leaders should be very proud of all that they accomplished and how high they set the bar future groups of KCB Teens.
The Biodiversity Education Center (BEC) wants to invite teens, ages 14-17, to apply for the fall session of KCB Teens. Share your passion for the environment and discover a new way to earn service hours while giving back to your community. This twice a month commitment runs August through December and is a great experience to showcase on your resume.
Registration for the Fall session opens in July 2019. For questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 972-304-3581.
