Safe Summer Campaign

The Safe Summer Campaign is a CALL TO ACTION by Let Them Talk from April 1st to July 31st, 2024. It aims to provide a safe, engaging, and nurturing environment for youth in our community during the summer months.

Why the Campaign Is Necessary: Summertime brings increased risks for young people, including exposure to violence and unsafe environments. The recent incidents of youth violence in our community underscore the urgent need for proactive measures. This campaign addresses these challenges head-on by offering structured, positive activities and resources that keep our youth safe and empower and uplift them.

What We Will Do:

  • Launch Fundraising Efforts Starting April 1st to support the campaign’s activities and resources.
  • Safe Summer Hot Spots: Establish accessible locations offering mentorship, resources, and recreational activities to engage youth positively.
  • Transportation Assistance: Provide bus passes to ensure safe travel for participants to and from activities.
  • Emergency Support: Allocate funds to assist youth facing immediate crises.
  • Nutritional Support: Distribute meal tickets and snack packs at designated meal spots to address food insecurity.
  • Safe Summer Kickbacks: Organize bi-weekly social events in a supervised environment to foster positive peer interactions.
  • Culminating Carnival: Host the Let Them Talk Carnival to celebrate the end of summer, including back-to-school giveaways, which serve as a positive transition into the academic year.

Collaboration Is Key: Success hinges on the partnership with local organizations, businesses, and government agencies and the invaluable support of parents, caregivers, and the youth themselves.
