About Safe Places

In partnership with local youth-serving and neighborhood agencies, Safe Places offer educational, recreational, and social enrichment activities for youth at MPS elementary, K-8, and high school locations.

Under the direction of trained staff from agency partners, Safe Places provide youth with opportunities to engage in educational and social enrichment activities, and play in safe environments. Safe Places also support families by providing opportunities for parent involvement in various activities and social events.



Milwaukee Recreation operates dozens of 21st CCLCs and Safe Places alongside other local youth-serving agencies, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, COA Youth and Family Centers, the Silver Spring Neighborhood Center, the Milwaukee Christian Center, Neu-Life Community Development, Journey House, America SCORES, and Neighborhood House.
