This project is a collaborative effort and community partners include the City of Coos Bay, the GUILD after-school arts program, and Community Action Adventure, a program of Oregon Coast Community Action (ORCCA). The mural will be located in Downtown Coos Bay Pedway, just south of the Egyptian Theatre.
CH2MHill, an international environmental engineering and consulting company, has generously sponsored this project. They will provide paint for the mural project, as well as a pizza party for the hard-working teens. CH2MHill has sponsored Community Action Adventure projects in the past, and provided supplies for the Fall 2010 Salmon Life Cycle and Squid Storm Drain Murals.
“Every youth should have opportunities to thrive,” comments ORCCA CEO Mary Schoen-Clark “The storm drain murals are a great way for teens to leave a positive mark on the City. We appreciate the support of our community partners in making this project a success.”
Pairing social responsibility with fun can achieve striking results. Providing opportunities for teens to engage with their community helps build the next generation of community leaders, and creates a culture of passionate concern for the greater good.
