About

Purpose and Activities

THE GRYD FOUNDATION BELIEVES THAT NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO BURY A LOVED ONE DUE TO GANG VIOLENCE, AND THAT NO ONE SHOULD BE LEFT BEHIND OR LIMITED BASED ON ZIP CODE. ESTABLISHED IN 2012, OUR MISSION IS TO CREATE A SAFER, STRONGER, HEALTHIER LOS ANGELES THAT WE CAN ALL ENJOY AND BE PROUD TO CALL HOME. THRU AN INNOVATIVE PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES MAYOR'S OFFICE OF GANG REDUCTION AND YOUTH DEVELOPMENT AND OUR COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM MODEL, WE CREATE PLATFORMS FOR POSITIVE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT VIA MEANINGFUL SPORTS, ARTS, EDUCATIONAL AND RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES, WHILE ALSO CREATING JOB OPPORTUNITIES AND PROVIDING LINKAGES TO COMMUNITY BASED RESOURCES IN 32 NEIGHBORHOODS ACROSS LOS ANGELES. WE DO THIS PRIMARILY VIA THE SUMMER NIGHT LIGHTS ("SNL") PROGRAM. CELEBRATING ITS 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY (2008-2018), THE SNL PROGRAM HAS A LONG STANDING HISTORY OF REDUCING VIOLENCE IN AND AROUND SNL SITES WHILE ENGAGING YOUTH AND ADULTS IN POSITIVE, MEANINGFUL ACTIVITIES.
