Creating a Safe Digital Space with SD Nights

Since 2017, SD Nights has provided a safe environment for teens to recreate during critical hours. Short for Safe Destination Nights, the program was designed to equip teens with essential life skills through various activities, while simultaneously empowering them to make a difference in their communities.

In 2019, the program hosted 191 events for over 10,000 participants in 22 locations. COVID-19 has required us to change the way we run the program, so instead of live events in parks, we’ve revamped the program to make it virtual. SD Nights will be holding Facebook Live events and Zoom meetings online, with interactive activities, games, classes and conversations designed especially for teens – with add-on content to promote health and wellness.
