Volunteer Opportunities

PASSION IN ACTION

I Love A Clean San Diego volunteers are a diverse group of San Diegons united by their passion for the environment, serving their community, and taking action. I Love A Clean San Diego welcomes individuals of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to be an active member of our mission. 

There are many ways to get involved. Whether you’re looking for a long term or short term opportunity we’d love to start your volunteer journey with us!

I Love A Clean San Diego offers a unique opportunity for volunteers looking to become “Pros.” As a Pro Volunteer you can help to lead and assist in cleanup events across San Diego County, or help with office administrative tasks. 

I Love A Clean San Diego hosts weekly cleanup events across San Diego County along with many workshops, DIY stations, and Swap events. Join us at any of our upcoming hosted events, or lead your own cleanup through our Adopt A Beach and Independent Cleanup programs!

Our Countywide Site Captains are champion volunteers who host a site for either or both Creek to Bay and Coastal Cleanup Day. Site Captains lead cleanup sites across San Diego County in April and September and help to remove over 200,000 pounds of litter and debris, annually.

I Love A Clean San Diego aims to prevent cigarette litter by installing and monitoring buttcan’s across San Diego County. Every buttcan needs to be visited on a monthly basis to remove graffiti, maintain stickers and be emptied. Anyone 21 years or older is eligible to become a Buttcan Ambassador for your community! No experience needed, all training and supplies are provided.

FAQ

I Love A Clean San Diego offers many unique opportunities to volunteer, whether it’s joining an event, becoming a Pro Volunteer, leading your own cleanup event, becoming a Site Captain or Buttcan Ambassador. To get started simply navigate on the top of this page to a specific opportunity. For more information please reach out to volunteer@cleansd.org

To become a Buttcan Ambassador, all participants must be 21 or older. For any other volunteer opportunity, we welcome all ages! For participants/volunteers under the age of 18, a liability waiver form will be required to be signed by your parent or guardian.

At ILCASD, we can work with any time commitments you may have. Some people are after long-term volunteer opportunities while others are only available for an hour a year. We are happy to work with each individual to best fit their needs and find the best program for their time commitment. For further enquiries please reach out to volunteers@cleansd.org and let them know what you’re after!

Most opportunities do not require any experience, but we do have a volunteer orientation for those interested in acting as additional support at our cleanups! If you are interested, click here to learn more and register. You will then receive access to our training video to go over the process. After watching the orientation video, we’ll send you instructions for signing up as a cleanup support volunteer! You only need to sign up once for this training.

Along with cleanup events, our Pro Volunteer program also is eligible for individuals needing to fulfill court-ordered hours.

Here are some of our accomplishments in 2014:WasteFreeSD.org: Our one of a kind hotline and database, WasteFreeSD.org fielded close to 14,000 requests for recycling information. Without this vital resource, residents would be left with nowhere to turn for recycling and proper disposal of hazardous items. This diverts countless amounts of waste from San Diego’s landfills, and prevents illegal dumping in our communities. Community Cleanups: We coordinated more than 28,000 volunteers last year to remove nearly 500,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from San Diego’s beaches, waterways, canyons, and parks. This debris is a threat to public health, wildlife, and the natural ecosystems in San Diego. Environmental Education: We empowered over 31,000 youth and adults in San Diego to make a positive impact on their environment. We know that youth hold the key to the environmental future of our community and our planet. Education provides inspiration to change their behaviors, helping minimize our community’s ecological footprint.
“I would like to share with you a terrific experience. Over several months, my family and I have been in contact with the [WasteFreeSD Hotline Operator] to learn the best methods of disposing of household hazardous wastes...The [WasteFreeSD Hotline Operator] has been so thorough and helpful to us with this project. Their knowledge and ability to explain the process are superb and I just wanted to share this with you.”

As a longtime supporter of our countywide cleanups, Harrah’s leads volunteer efforts at Buccaneer Beach in Oceanside and at Lake Wohlford with ILACSD each spring and fall. They also selected ILACSD to be the recipient of their charity slot tournament in April, which worked out great with the timing of ILACSD’s first ever matching campaign. Thanks for all that you do for the community, Harrah’s!
