The Pacifica Beach Coalition cleans up the beach, teaches people about litter, replants the dunes, and has reduced litter overall on Pacifica's beaches and streets.

But perhaps the most important function it serves doesn't get recognized -- and that is the opportunities afforded to everyone, but in particular young people, especially teenagers -- to participate in, contribute to, and learn from society.

Providing constructive activities, and social and learning opportunities, for teens is worth so much more than the tiny amount of money the city spends to fund the Beach Coalition each year.

The tiny amount of funding gives back a thousand more by contributing to the overall health of the community in the cleanup of litter, sure, but more in the constructive activities for teens and other children.
