SLNC Board Funds New SAFE Kids Program

The SLNC Governing Board approved a Youth Committee motion to provide funding towards the SAFE (Streets Are For Everyone) Kids education program that will serve local 4th and 5th graders. The program is conducted in partnership with the LAPD’s Central Traffic Division and focuses on teaching elementary school children safe pedestrian habits. Students will take part in an interactive safety program and take a pledge to follow safety guidelines and encourage their parents to drive safely. In addition, children who ask parents and grandparents to take the pledge will receive a LED Pedestrian Safety Light when the pledge is signed and returned.
