Long Beach Summer Night Lights
Despite overall reductions in levels of violent crime, violence among youth—especially youth of color—remains at epidemic levels. Homicide is the leading cause of death for African Americans, between the ages of 10 and 24, and it is the second-leading cause of death for Asians and Pacific Islanders, American Indians, and Latinos of the same age.
Long Beach Summer Night Lights is returning to Drake Park, Admiral Park and Martin Luther King Park starting in July 2012. The program is looking for Youth Squad members and for non-profit Contractors.
Centro CHA is calling all youth between the ages of 16-18 to apply under our Youth Squad Summer Internship Program.
