We believe in safe, clean water for communities today and for future generations. A priority is preparing future leaders with the skills and resources to affect change.
The Communities for Clean Water Youth Council is a self-governed youth organization that enables young people to become community leaders for clean water. We provide the Youth Council with mentorship and financial and technical support.
Youth Council members engage their peers, as well as the larger community, in a dialogue about LANL-related water impacts. By participating in the Youth Council, young people strengthen their personal connection to water and grow empathy for all who depend on this life-giving resource. Through site visits, public presentations, the arts, and educational activities, they are building leadership skills and ecoliteracy–a sense of deep responsibility for the well-being of communities and the planet.
