The kids of Savannah's Pre-Apprentice Program taking to the streets to beautify the city.

At least 25 young people took time out of their summer work schedules to pick up trash along main roads and help with painting and lawn care. What they're doing helps them as well as the people they're serving.

“So they can have pride, where they live at, where they're from. If they don't respect where they come from, then how will other people respect where they come from? So, it's very good to come out and clean up and keep their community beautiful,” said one volunteer.

The participants have a full schedule for the rest of July. They paint houses next week and clean up along Waters Avenue July 22.
