  • 2008 Outstanding Volunteer of the Year Award Recipients Every year Keep Bakersfield Beautiful (KBB) recognizes the volunteers it may rely on the most to carry out its mission.  The KBB Committee and City of Bakersfield Solid Waste Division staff nominate volunteers to be considered for an award.  Nominees must participate in more than one KBB event a year, and/or lead a KBB activity or event, and/or actively participate in a KBB sub-committee in order to be considered.  The KBB Committee decides who will win.  The winners are celebrated during a ceremony at the annual Great American Cleanup™ in April.  In 2008, State Senator Dean Florez’s office and the Honorable Mayor Harvey Hall also presented certificates of appreciation to the winners during the ceremony.



Charlie Alvary IV, is committed to community service, because he recognizes the value of volunteer work.  He started volunteering for Keep Bakersfield Beautiful (KBB) about two years ago through the Career Beginnings Program at Cal State University, Bakersfield.  Since then, he’s learned he should highlight his volunteer work experience when applying for jobs.  He’s also a teenager who understands he can be a positive example to his peers and younger children.  “[One is] a role model to the younger generation by showing them that caring for the community is important,” said Alvary.  His favorite KBB activity is the Highway 99 Tree Planting Project.  Alvary said, “…trees help the environment by filtering Carbon Dioxide, making Oxygen, and providing habitats for birds and other wildlife.”  He says another positive point to trees is that they can reduce noise pollution in neighborhoods.  When he’s not volunteering, Charlie enjoys spending his free time playing basketball, playing tennis, and working on cars.

The Career Beginnings Program (CBP) at Cal State, Bakersfield strives to teach high school students to take pride in their community and be positive role models to their peers.  “I felt that we should give back to the community that has supported us for 22 years,” said Peter Rivera, director of CBP.  Over the last five years or so that goal has become reality though CBP’s commitment to Keep Bakersfield Beautiful (KBB) and the City of Bakersfield.  CBP volunteers for a variety of projects year round, such as cleaning up litter along local freeways for Mayor Harvey Hall every month, KBB’s Litter Index Survey in the summer, Make A Difference Day in October, and the Great American Cleanup™ (GAC) in April.  GAC is the group’s favorite KBB event.   “The number of people working for one common goal is a very impressive community building activity,” said Rivera.  In 2008, approximately 3,000 local GAC volunteers picked up litter, cleaned up illegal dump sites, painted over graffiti, planted trees, and more together throughout the city.  CBP’s mission is to motivate low-income and other disadvantaged youth to graduate from high school and continue their education afterward, or get started on a career path.
