2000 - Youth Award - Mixed Ages - Youth Volunteer Corps of Tulsa

The Youth Volunteer Corps of Tulsa organizes many different programs during the year. Volunteers ranging in age from 6 to 18 take part in several events such as Paint the Town, an activity that paints over graffiti on various walls and buildings throughout Tulsa and other litter clean-up events.

As part of Operation Clean Sweep last April 15th, Youth Volunteer Corps asked for the worst litter site in Tulsa...and they got it. The 500-acre site just east of the OSU-Tulsa Campus had been an eyesore for decades. The 200 YVC volunteers started work early in the morning, and they didn’t stop until every piece of trash had been picked up. Their 70-ton haul included old furniture, tires, an abandoned boat, and old televisions. The tireless efforts of the YOUTH VOLUNTEER CORPS OF TULSA IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
