Youth Scholarships Available for Keep Cobb Beautiful Program

The Associate Board Member program is a great way for young people to volunteer in their communities and add that service to their college applications.

Keep Cobb Beautiful staff is offering local youth the opportunity to be a part of the Associate Board Member program, which is an excellent opportunity to explore the benefits of working with a non-profit organization to educate, beautify and improve the environment.

The program will give youth hands-on experience implementing programs and hosting events. Associate Board Members will be eligible to sit on KCB's various committees, help organize and run events and represent the organization at luncheons, trainings and award ceremonies. They may also qualify for college scholarships that will be awarded to active, engaged members.

  • Have an interest in environmental community service
  • Be able to pledge a total of 35 hours for the school year
  • Be willing to make a long-term commitment to the program for the duration of the school year
