Safe Youth Fun Summer for Dolores Mission

Today was the first day of the Dolores Mission's "Jovenes Seguros - Verano Divertido" program (Safe Youth - Fun Summer). Along with LA Voice, I worked with Dolores Mission community leaders to help launch this program, which just like the name says, is meant to give 60 children a safe and fun alternative this summer while keeping them out of harm's way. Besides educational and arts programs for the kids, they'll also sponsor workshops for parents on topics such as home safety and tenants rights, as well as hosting movie nights for youth and adults.
