Safe Streets knows that youth have the power to change the world. Our programs equip youth with the tools and skills needed to be healthy, thriving changemakers in our community.

We support young people by empowering them to navigate toward successful adulthood. Safe Streets provides responsive programming, dealing with real-time issues, amplifying youth voice so that they can take action. Do you have an idea on how to engage young people? It takes a village and we need you! Reach out today to talk to us and let’s collaborate on making Pierce County a place where young people can thrive in safe, healthy, and clean community!


This course, available for both teens and the adults who care about them is, as one participant stated, “the best, most useful workshop I’ve ever attended.” Participants come away with increased confidence in helping young people navigate difficult feelings and a greater knowledge of tools and resources available when additional help is needed.

We partner with Tacoma Public Schools and local neighborhood groups and businesses to place high school students in work experience opportunities that strengthen our community. If you are a small Tacoma business who is interested in working with us, reach out today!

This program adds a new twist to neighborhood late night activities for youth. In addition to fun, food, and friends– youth gain skills to strengthen their social emotional wellness and navigate the complicated emotions of adolescence.
