Summer Activities, Meals at Community Centers

Seattle Parks and Recreation is offering Summer of Safety (SOS), a FREE program that provides structured activities, food, 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.  

SOS is operating at seven locations (including Garfield Community Center and Yesler Community Center) on various days throughout summer. See schedules below.

Most sites provide a free lunch through the City’s Summer Food Service Program. Regular SOS activities include field trips, arts and craft, as well as sports and athletics. The program operates 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.
