2024 Summer of Safety: Free Activities and Safe Places for Youth 

Seattle Parks and Recreation is proud to offer Summer of Safety (SOS), a FREE program that provides structured activities and a safe space for young people not connected to other supervised programs over the summer. The program is geared towards serving diverse groups of tweens and teens from low-income neighborhoods.   

SOS will operate at 8 community center locations on various days throughout summer (see schedule below). Most sites will provide a free lunch through the City’s Summer Food Service Program. Regular SOS activities will include field trips, arts and craft, as well as sports and athletics. The program will operate rain or shine and no sign up is required (pre-register only for fieldtrips); youth can drop in on any day and at any time during the program’s regular hours.  

Questions? Please contact the community center for more information.
