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 is part of the GRYD Comprehensive strategy, which is directed at increasing community resiliency to the influence of gangs and gang violence.
Summer Night Lights (“SNL”) operates at 32 locations across the City of Los Angeles, keeping recreation centers and parks open and adding extended programming between the hours of 7 pm – 11 pm during the summer.
