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.

Summer Night Lights (“SNL”) traditionally operates at 32 locations across the City of Los Angeles, keeping recreation centers and parks open between the hours of 7 pm – 11 pm during the summer and adding extended programming.  SNL expands the menu of activities at each site beyond what is traditionally offered.  As a result, community members can participate in free sports, arts and recreational activities, resource fairs, health screenings, workshops, and connections to resources that they can utilize year round.

Summer Night Lights, Fall Friday Nights and Youth Squad 360 programming work together to transform lives across Los Angeles.

Novel Coronavirus has prompted changes to SNL 2020. Check back frequently for info on modified 2020 SNL dates, locations, and program services in light of COVID-19.
