EDUCATION & CAMPUS CLUBS
WHY GET INVOLVED?
Our Campus Club network creates a platform to meet the demand by young people for opportunities to influence environmental action through service, leadership development, civic engagement and direct action organizing.
The Education Committee focuses on raising awareness of marine pollution issues in our community by actively bringing all Surfrider Foundation programs to K-12 and college students. We engage students through presentations, assemblies, hands-on classroom activities and community service opportunities.

Surfrider Foundation Pacifica High School
Executive Board Member names/titles: Emma Issacson, President
Advisor: Alice Chang
Pacifica has just joined the ranks of Surfrider and has already attended several beach cleanups, and have helped set up the festivities at the Board Makers Hall of Induction, and are working on outreach to their campus on the dangers of plastic pollution.
Their Goal: At Pacifica it is our goal to educate students about the ways that their lifestyle impacts the environment and how they, as members of the coastal community, are able to combat issues such as; pollution, climate change, and drought.
Surfrider Foundation Huntington Beach High School
Executive Board Member names/titles: Mason Lucero, President
HBHS has been at almost every beach cleanup we have held since 2018. Their assistance has made our cleanups a huge success. They have also assisted at various events off campus and they want to integrate a plastics free program at their school.
Surfrider Foundation Marina High School
Executive Board Member names/titles: Kelly Song, President
Under Kelly's leadership, Marina has not only had dozens of students help out at the beach, but because of their club, they made the HBUHSD STEAM Fair a success. Using our gyre and urban runoff model, they showed students and parents the effects of items that drain into the ocean and how that debris collects in the Great Pacific Gyre off our Coast.
Aside from helping out at HSB Surfrider beach cleanups, they are focused on launching a community outreach program geared towards students (grade K-5), educating on the dangers of pollution as well as encouraging local restaurants to become ocean friendly.
Way to go!
