Building Community through Environmental Stewardship...

We're a group of  mostly teenagers (and a few adults) who have come together through our love of community and our concern for the environment.  After learning about the national organization, Clean Up - Give Back, we decided to start a local chapter which operates as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization in Illinois.  

We believe...

"As young people, we have a lot of passion and contact with other teenagers.   Having our board consist largely of teens invites a population whose futures directly depend on loyalty to the environment."

-Libby, Lily, Audrey, Frankie and Gia (teen board members) 


What we do...

We partner with others that want to give back to the community through clean-up campaigns.  You can join an existing campaign as an individual or  your group can partner with us to spend a few hours  enjoying the camaraderie of your group, improving our community and taking care of the environment.  Clean Up - Give Back will  help your group choose a location, supply safety equipment, coordinate logistics, and help your group enjoy 2-3 hours of community service. 


Cleanup campaigns are a great solution to giving back during COVID-19.  Cleanup campaigns allow for outside physical distancing.  We ask that you bring your mask in case you're not able to maintain 6 feet between you and your friends.  We will supply gloves in addition to typical cleanup equipment (safety vests, trash grabbers, bags). 

We love helping other groups meet their community service goals!
