Operation Open Gym

Each year we partner with the Dexter Wellness Center to provide an open gym experience where youth can play half-court basketball, volleyball, pickle ball, and other games. We also provide water and healthy snacks.


Volunteer Appreciation Party

This is our time to say thanks to everyone who helped out over the course of the year. An award ceremony recognizes individuals for their contributions. The rest of the event is just a chance to eat, relax, and have fun with fellow coalition members.


Fall Kick-Off Rally

For the second year in a row SRSLY members hope to kick off the new school year at a Dexter High School Varsity football game. Banners will be hung up in downtown Dexter to let people know to look for us that night. At the game, youth and adult volunteers pass out green glow bracelets, SRSLY temporary tattoos, and information about our coalition to everyone in attendance.

Youth-Only Meeting

The SRSLY Youth-Only Meeting is a chance for kids to have their say. This 90-minute evening meeting is open to all 5th – 12th grade students and home-schooled youth. Youth Steering Committee members help by facilitating small group discussions. Input and ideas generated at the November Youth-Only Meeting will be used to adjust and improve the SRSLY action plan.
