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.

When they do something it's too late, though. If someone in unable to control hurting someone, then we control what they cannot.

In my opinion, this is a dumb question. Unless the bully got their hands on a mind-control device, each individual is still responsible for their own actions. If I commit suicide because my boyfriend left me, should he get charged for murder? If I kill myself because I lost my job, can one of my family members sue my ex-employer? What happened to personal responsibility?

You've got a point there. (; Now if only I could hear that more often around here XD But, yeah, it can be kind of hard to take it all in. On the one hand, a bully could say "Why don't you just kill yourself" and it could send someone over the edge; but can they really be at fault completely for the death of someone? Surely more than just telling this person to do it played into the cause.
