Clean Crew

"to provide job readiness training to youth and young adults while also performing neighborhood beautification as a strategy for crime prevention through environmental design.."


We envision a Rainier Beach that is a beautiful, safe place for everyone, and where everyone is provided with the necessary training and skills for employment.

Program Description

The Clean Crew typically consists of 4-6 young adults and a supervisor who meet weekly to plan and execute neighborhood clean-up (‘beautification’) projects. The idea for this program came out of a desire to implement Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) strategies in the Rainier Beach neighborhood. The Crew relies on the support from both residents and local government entities to execute the overall neighborhood beautification effort by maintaining the safety and cleanliness of public and private areas.
