Become A Junior Active Member

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

The Pacific Beach Coalition welcomes youth and student volunteers of all ages to learn how to become leaders and to earn credit and complete service hours while giving back to the community. Students will be 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, we have a few!

Be Part of A Group, Join the Junior Team

Our current team of Junior Mission Blue Crew is supervised by two longtime volunteers, Gail and Cecily. Over the past two years, they met virtually on the third Thursday of the month to discuss current and upcoming projects. In January 2022, the group decided to do group activities rather than Zoom meetings.

Very often the students lead groups at their school and report on progress. They learn to be responsible and reliable, they also develop project management and public speaking as well as other very good applicable skills.
