Join the Teens Team: Whale Force

The Pacific Beach Coalition welcomes youth and student volunteers of all ages. Learn how to become leaders, earn credit, and complete service hours while giving back to the community and learning more about protecting and preserving our Earth.

Members of the Whale Force Can:

  • Collect community service hours
  • Be a Teen Site Captain (must commit to 1 Sat or Sun per month)
  • Work with Site Captains to lead beach cleanups
  • Hand out materials
  • Become a significant member of the organizing team at any beach
  • Conduct self-guided beach cleanups

Thank you for this opportunity this past year and a half. I really enjoyed my time with the PBC and getting to work with volunteers. I also want to let you know that I used my volunteer hours with the PBC to get a thousand dollar scholarship, which I am very excited about.
