|Litter Abatement: Cleaning up our Parks!
The youth in KYP understand that the parks belong to everyone, and we all play an important role in keeping them clean and safe. Our litter abatement projects are a time for youth to play a personal role in keeping Oakland parks beautiful. Even our youngest participants can get into the action!
