The Summer Night Lights program is a public and private partnership undertaken by the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction & Youth Development (GRYD) and the GRYD Foundation.
Summer Night Lights is part of the GRYD Comprehensive strategy, which is directed at increasing community resiliency to the influence of gangs and gang violence.
The SCTA Foundation gave funds to assist with tennis classes at several sites from June 28 – August 25th. Attached are some pictures of Jackie Tatum Harvard Recreation Center from last Friday night tennis classes at the park. It was great to see Adrienne Newsom, President & Chief Operating Officer of the GRYD Foundation there to hit some balls with Al Erby, the instructor, working with the kids. He is also the instructor for the LA84 Foundation SCTA/NJTL Youth Tennis Program at the park for the year round tennis program. The kids were having a lot of fun and several parents joined in as well.
