The Mayor’s Task Force on Youth Safety along with Fighting Back Santa Maria Valley invite the public to a free community fair and workshop series, as part of the City of Santa Maria’s National Night Out event on Tuesday, August 1st.
A central goal of the task force is to leverage existing resources within the community, to ensure safe and healthy opportunities for youth. Hundreds of families are anticipated at the event, and all are invited to attend these free Mayor’s Task Force workshops and the community fair.
Come out to the Veterans’ Memorial Community Center, 313 West Tunnell Street, on August 1st from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and participate in free workshops offered by Fighting Back Santa Maria Valley with themes that include Nurturing Skills for Families, the Parent Project, Daring to Thrive, and more. In addition, a community fair offering youth and family resources will be taking place in the auditorium. Child care will also be provided by the Community Action Commission for children ages one year old and up.
Free refreshments will be available while supplies last at the National Night Out event located at the Veterans’ Memorial Park across the street.
The Mayor’s Task Force on Youth Safety formed earlier this year. It is a collaborative involving elected officials, local community-based organizations, schools, the faith-based community, and local law enforcement. Materials are posted online at
