Southside Summer Experience Kicks Off with Event on South Avenue

Friday, June 15, 2018

The Southside Summer Experience is a series of pop-up events and day camps that provide positive activities throughout the South Side for youth and their families. 

As part of the US DOJ Community Based Crime Reduction project, the events bring together community members, YPD officers, and neighborhood youth in a safe, fun, and engaging environment.  Through hundreds of door-to-door interviews, residents identified a need for more opportunities and activities for youth as one of the most desired improvements for their neighborhood.  One event will be held each week in the CBCR target area, between Market St. and Zedaker.  The first Southside Summer Experience took place on South Ave. on Monday, June 11 and the next will be held at the corner of Southern Blvd. and E. Ravenwood on Tuesday, June 19.  All events take place from 5pm-7pmand are free to the public.
