Surfrider Foundation launched the QUAD youth service program in 2008 in response to overwhelming interest across the country from young people that wished to become more involved in Surfrider Foundation’s activities on their campuses and communities. The program has grown to a wide range of activities including organizing a club and initiatives based on project-based learning. These range from beach clean ups to eliminating single use plastics on-campus to greening your campus.
The Texas Coastal Bend is proud to welcome the King High School Surf Club as the first school in Texas to become part of the QUAD program. You guys & gals rock!
Skip The Plastic is designed to eliminate the impacts of plastics in the marine environment by raising awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution and by advocating for a reduction of single-use plastics and the recycling of all plastics.
“TXCBC volunteers help Corpus Christi’s Storm Water Department twice a year to apply medallions on storm drain inlets in selected areas of the city. We also distribute educational brochures informing homeowners about their role in reducing the negative impacts of urban runoff. Email us for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org“
The TXCBC recently received a grant to buy units to collect cigarette butts at selected areas on local beaches and piers. Look for the units in the near future.
