Impact Teens Goldsboro has signed a 4-year agreement for a designated road in the city of Goldsboro, which allows the organization to clean their designated road every three months or more depending on the adoptee. Impact Teens Goldsboro road has been adopted April 2016 and will be adopted until April 2021. This experience will definitely build trust amongst members of the organization as well as bonding relationships that will last a lifetime.

The Adopt-A-Highway Program was established in 1988 by the North Carolina Department of Transportation in response to the growing concern of public litter along the state’s highways. This program is administered by NCDOT Office of Beautification which was created for local churches, businesses, and organizations to adopt. The sole purpose of this program is to decrease the amount of litter on roadsides in North Carolina and improve the beauty and quality of the environment.
