This service learning project will introduce the importance of creating a cleaner and safer environment for people, plants, and wildlife on our campus and in the community. By integrating Missouri Girls Town's longstanding focus on life-skills training, youth will have the opportunity to not only interact with nature, but learn about their impact on the environment through litter disposal and recycling projects. Participants will be challenged to help eradicate litter and waste in one of two zones (either Zone #1-Campus, or Zone #2- Community). Gloves and safety wear will be provided to ensure participant safety. Each participant will have the opportunity to learn about the importance of creating a healthy, clean, and safe environment for all. The project will culminate with a celebration for all of the participants efforts in reaching our goal of creating a cleaner environment. This project will be part of an ongoing effort to introduce more service learning opportunities on Missouri Girls Town's campus.

Freshman F.I.R.S.T. Roots & Shoots Campaign addresses local environmental needs related to conservation and preservation of natural resources, specifically in local watersheds, streams and parks. Our approach is to work enlist 385 grade nine students to collaborate with our science teachers, local environment and EPA specialist, civic and business leaders and community volunteers to address needs while actualizing or transferring knowledge gained in school to address local needs. The program objective is for all 9th graders, each who are enrolled in Environmental Science or Biology classes to take action and outreach to enlist at least one community volunteer (adult) to work with us to address the identified needs of our community watershed, creeks, banks, parks and recreational areas.

We will create a hands on educational game where students will race against each other to throw away the most trash in the right bins. The student with the most distributed and correct will receive "spirit points' for their entire grade. We will do this by planning the game and having it during nutrition when everyone gathers around the lower quad stage.
