Volunteers Wanted At Sites in Need!
Cleanup sites are on the VOLUNTEER page - take a look to find cleanup locations near you! Coastal locations are popular, but consider volunteering at a canyon or park to prevent litter from entering our waterways! Sites highlighted in green need your help (without you the Site Captains will be cleaning up all by themselves):
Check out all the available contests and volunteer perks for our awesome volunteers on the Event Info page, like discounted tickets to the 9/24 Padres vs. Dodgers game, the Sony Photo Contest (with a 65th Anniversary throwback twist!) and Commemorative Scout Patch!
What is a site captain?
Our site captains lead an individual site on the day of the event. ILACSD provides training, cleanup supplies, additional volunteer outreach, website coordination for registration, and hauling for the trash and debris collected.
Before the event, site captains are responsible for communicating with our team via email/phone, picking up cleanup supplies from our office - either at one of our site captain training dates (highly encouraged for newer site captains) or at another time before the event.
Some duties include:
- Leading volunteers day of - coordinating waiver signing, providing cleanup supplies, safety speech, etc.
- Choose and scout cleanup location
- Locate where the dumpster should be on-site, if necessary, within ILACSD's deadlines
- Report back totals and accomplishments to ILACSD by 12pm the day of the event
- Return supplies within a timely manner to ILACSD at celebration party or at our officesIf you are interested, please reach out to Lauren Short at firstname.lastname@example.org for locations needed. The deadline to be a site captain is July 17th, 2019!
