TEENAGE YOUTH LAUNCHES REWARDS PROGRAM TO BUILD SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES IN CANADA

Toronto, ON (February 5, 2014) - For many students and youth, launching a nation wide program is a dream for the future. For one bright and talented young woman, it’s a reality that she hopes will transform youth community engagement into a result driven, rewarding endeavour.

My Clean City is a national leadership program created by motivational speaker Kelly Lovell. Made for YOUth by YOUth, My Clean City caters to the 21st century student volunteer; providing a platform that engages goal-oriented mindsets and adds personal motivation to volunteer experiences.

Taking a result driven approach to volunteering, My Clean City quantifies youth impact by recording volunteer results and crediting youth and organizations that assist in achieving environmental goals. Program participants earn CleanCreds, a currency that is earned by volunteerism and community impact. CleanCreds can later be redeemed for gift cards with leading brand partners, exclusive prize packs, and intrinsic rewards such as mentorship and leadership opportunities.

“Youth are not the leaders of tomorrow, we are the leaders of today,” says Kelly A. Lovell, Founder, My Clean City. “My Clean City works to motivate youth to do more and do better using a simple four step approach: Engage, Impact, Earn and Redeem. This not only encourages mass participation among students, it trains students to be results driven, a necessary skill for survival in the workplace as an adult”.

Uniting environmentally committed organizations working for the same cause, My Clean City is a collaborative project with a variety of national brand and charitable partners. H&M, a national brand partner of this project and one dedicated to conscious actions that build a more sustainable fashion future, will take their part by encouraging garment collecting in stores and rewarding gift cards among their other prizes to youth who take action to green their cities with the program.

Other supporters of My Clean City include: TakingItGlobal, Environmental Defence, YMCA of Greater Toronto, GreenLearning.ca, Ecycle Solutions, and TerraCycle.

Through such collaborative efforts My Clean City will bridge the gap between youth, local resources and their communities to improve Canada’s environment.

It's ruining lives... i learned that. I think it shouldn't  ruin marriages because  one of the partners think they should fit in and "become gay". This is my opinion though, think whatever you want and fill my notifactions with hate....

Both candidates yes are not the best but Trump has no expirence in politics. 1. He is xenophobic and a racist ###### against other people exept for himself. 2. He has yet to pay 1 nickel in paying federal taxes because he avoids that by putting all of his money into his Swiss bank account. No wonder why he complains why it costs so much to move money over seas 3. He has not payed his workers the money that they asked for. 4. Most of his employees that work on his properties most likely are illegal immagents since he wants everything to be as cheap as possible.5. He policies will only cause or anual debt to add an extra 5 trillion dollars total up to more than 25 trillion dollars in debt. 6. Mexico paying for the wall that's not going to happen. You can't force another country to pay for a wall because our immagration policies are not adaquite enough. That's a problem with our immagration policies not the border fence. 7. He made up a bunch of conspiracy theories about why Obama was not born in the United States or the fact that he caused 9/11 because he was a Muslim. We all know that these accounts are bullcrap. He is just not qualified for the job in anyway for a multitude of reasons and this list can go on for ever. He has too many flaws in his ideas and wants to benfit off of the job as much as he can because he really only cares about himself not the people as a whole.
