I am a Junior in high school and I would like to get service hours to get into National Honor Society. This would be a great opportunity for my friends as well.
I am a member in CSF program of my high school. That's why they mostly giving me the information about many community services that I can join to get experiences and fun.
This was a very calm, very easy volunteer opportunity to complete. The head organizers were very friendly and immediately got us integrated to begin working. They supplied bags, gloves, long reach picker-uppers, and even sifters. The work was relaxing actually. You walk along the beach and pick up any trash/recyclable you encounter. It was only an hour long. At the end, when you return the bags of trash, they weigh them and somewhat make it into a friendly competition. They announce who got the highest. I thought that was a great touch. Overall, great experience. I will return.
It was easy to communicate with the organization and they answered all of my questions about volunteering.
Great turnout of people, plenty of supplies for those who didn't bring any, and a very cheerful group of reps from the organization. They also make an effort to track all the trash picked up at the event, which undoubtedly helps inspire a feeling of accomplishment for the volunteers.
