Safe & Sound is inviting youth development organizations serving young people between the ages of 10-19 to review the 2014 Safe Places Initiative Request for Proposals now available on its website.
Now in its 15th year, Safe & Sound has partnered with youth-serving agencies to improve neighborhood quality of life through a community engagement strategy of positive youth development. Grant funds are used to offer safe environments and foster pro-social orientations that promote healthy behaviors among youth.
Organizations selected as Safe Places will become part of a citywide network for the benefit of both staff at youth-serving agencies and youth they engage. To learn more about applying to become a Safe Place afterschool program, please review the 2014 Safe Places Request for Proposal.
