Clean Communities Environmental Student Exchange

2014 Student Exchange - click here

The Clean Communities Environmental Student Exchange is a program organized by the Clean Communities Council to provide opportunities for students to visit students in regions of the state in which they do not reside or attend school for the purposes of participating in environmental projects and discussing mutual concerns about litter and solid waste.

Program goals are to acquaint students with the types of litter and trash found in different regions of the state and learn how waste is managed; facilitate an exchange of information among students about the trash problem; provide opportunities for students to explore cultural and historical sites within the framework of environmental issues; and promote education about litter and the proper handling of solid waste.

Teachers must agree to prepare students for the student exchange. Students must pledge to Slam Dunk the Junk and Keep New Jersey Clean & Green.  The program is recommended for middle and high school students.
