Fix Our World "Hamilton Street Team" -
City Wide program involving youth and local
schools in their own area. Engaging Youth, Volunteer hours given for OSSD.
Youth gain valuable tools and use their skills to create sensible solutions
to the problems we face here in our own backyards in Hamilton.
Mission- Once a week our Street Team spends an hour Picking up litter in
their area, separate and document findings. Take photo's & footage.
All will be honoured in various forms for their contributions. Youth use their data skills, research skills, Film & photo skills, journalist skills. We document all our findings and enter into our data system.
We are cleaning up our City streets, nooks & crannies, parks, trails, beaches, paths &
walkways. Environmentally we are saving Nature by stopping these items from
blowing into our water systems and contributing to the major plastic sites
in the oceans, over 7 million tons of plastic spanning an area twice the size of texas destroying our oceans and harming our food chains.
Youth will be Documenting our findings, creating and implementing sensible
solutions, educating Youth and communities about the issue of litter and how it affects the environment and putting an end to it. Creating fun competitions and empowering Youth, giving them a sense of accomplishment and ownership to our City and our World. Educating about Nature and
Environment and respect for all living things.
Once a month we treat youth to an outing. Partnering with local groups, clubs, organizations such as McMaster Outdoor Club providing Leadership building, Rock Climbing, Outdoor excursions, Workshops, Environment Education including Healthy food, Eat Local, Nature, Water, Plant &
Vegetation etc. Our team will also join Earth Day Hamilton in Earth Day
