Be an Earth Hero.  We offer environmental stewardship opportunities students love!

The Pacific Beach Coalition welcomes youth and student volunteers of all ages to earn credit and complete their service hours while giving back to community and learning more about protecting and preserving our ocean, beaches, coastline and natural beauty that we all enjoy and appreciate!

Students can participate in our short or long-term volunteer opportunities, and apply their volunteer time towards earning credit or fulfilling community service requirements for high school graduation, college or university graduation, and/or the college application process.
