Summer Night Lights

Crime rates peak between 8 p.m. and midnight during the summer months. In the of Summer 2011, the Tulare County Step Up Advisory Committee challenged communities to get involved and to help provide positive, wholesome activities for youth during these critical hours.

The Summer Night Lights program is a collaborative initiative that will begin its ninth year in Tulare County during the 2019 summer months. Summer Night Lights provides positive programming and a safe environment for youth of all ages. Community partners include the Tulare County Board of Supervisors, Boys and Girls Clubs, Tulare County Workforce Investment Department, Family Healthcare Network, CSET, Tulare County Office of Education/SEE, United Way, Tulare County Probation, Sheriff’s Department, cities, local law enforcement, school districts, local churches, and more. 

Vision of the Summer Night Lights program:
•    Keep a youth/family centered venue open at least one night in host communities.
•    Provides full time summer employment and specialized training for 22 Tulare County youth.
•    Provides positive programming for youth and families countywide.
•    Allows for positive interaction between youth and local law enforcement.
•    Gives youth and families a fun and safe environment.
•    Serves free food to all that attended.
•    Provides community organizations, including churches, a forum to introduce their services to the community.
•    Serves more than 27,000 youth and adults (Summer 2015).

Goals:
•    Provide safe recreational opportunities for youth of all ages.
•    Reduce crimes committed by and against youth during the summer months.
•    Improve the local economy through jobs, training, and purchasing food and other supplies.
