The Summer Youth Program (SYP) started in 1980 in an effort to get police and youth together in a positive non- threatening atmosphere.

The SYP provides 200 Moorhead youth between ages 8-12 a chance to gather with mentors from the Police Department, community, youth services and schools for lunch, an educational presentation and a recreational activity once a week from about noon to 4 pm. This program is designed for Moorhead youth who are not participating in other summer programs (drama, baseball, softball, etc.) and need activities to occupy their summer days. We want kids who will be able to attend most, if not all, of the activities.

Each participant will receive a t-shirt which must be worn to each activity. Participants are expected to behave and have loads of fun!

The program is offered free of charge. Money to fund the program comes from a grant from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Office of Justice Programs. This program is also supported through Moorhead Community Education.  Children must be 8 years of age at the time of registration and can be no older than 12 years of age.
