The conference will offer programs and breakouts sessions that educate, motivate and encourage activation of initiatives that create and preserve vibrant communities.Additionally Keep America Beautiful will host ten outstanding and connected teens who sit on KAB’s newly formed Youth Advisory Panel. Along with the Youth component of the National Conference, Thursday afternoon’s focus will be on Environmental Literacy.

Discussions will include service learning, connecting kids to nature, curriculum, policy and engaging high school students.
