The Volunteer Social Community Coordinator is the voice of CleanUp News. This person will be the energy source for the cleanup community and will interact and develop relationships with our audience across social and digital channels. We are looking for someone who has a passion for writing, content creation, and social media. If you are quick-witted, fluent in youth culture, and have a keen eye for detail and process, we’re looking for you.
The Community Coordinator will be a key player in making CleanUp News one of the most effective and innovative public service news projects in the country. He/She must be a self-starter with a high level of organization and self-accountability.
CleanUp News is a major, new initiative of National CleanUp Day / Clean Trails. We are a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization and community of people dedicated to keeping the outdoors clean. Study after study shows the highest indicator that someone will pick up litter is if they witness someone else picking up litter. That’s because peer group norms are more powerful than incentives, and when worked in concert with each other, they can provide impressive behavioral change impacts.
Core to our beliefs is the notion that people want to do the right things; all they need is a little encouragement or incentive. We believe that people are naturally responsible; if we encourage them to care for their favorite places, to pick up after themselves and others, then our communities will become self-sufficient, clean, and more enjoyable.

National CleanUp Day and World CleanUp Day! Have Fun in the Outdoors and do good. Clean Trails promotes harmony with the land by encouraging stewardship and by providing mechanisms to keep the trail systems that lead to our wild spaces litter-free.
We’re a nonprofit organization aiming to become a nation-wide community of people dedicated to keeping our wild places and the trails that access those spaces free of litter. Study after study shows the highest indicator that someone will pick up litter is if they witness someone else picking up litter. That’s because peer group norms are more powerful than incentives, and when worked in concert with each other, they can provide impressive behavioral change impacts.
Core to our beliefs is the notion that people want to do the right things; all they need is a little encouragement or incentive. We believe that people are naturally responsible; if we encourage them to care for their favorite places, to pick up after themselves and others, then our trails will become self-sufficient, clean, and more enjoyable.
