Summer Night Lights

The Summer Night Lights program is a public and private partnership undertaken by the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction & Youth Development (“GRYD”) and The GRYD Foundation.

As a violence-reduction program, Summer Night Lights targets one of the seasons of greatest need and those locations historically impacted by such violence (evidence shows increased gang-related violence during summer months.)

Summer Night Lights (“SNL”) operates at 32 locations across the City of Los Angeles, keeping recreation centers and parks open between the hours of 7 pm – 11 pm throughout the summer months.  SNL expands the menu of activities at each site beyond what is traditionally offered.
