The City of Santa Maria Mayor’s Task Force on Youth Safety is coordinating three fun excursions to San Luis Obispo for teens in grades 7 through 12 during the school districts’ spring break. The free activities include attending a collegiate baseball game between the California Polytechnic State University Mustangs and the Stanford University Cardinals. The spring break series kicks off with rock-climbing lessons at The Pad gymnasium, followed by an escape room experience and a stroll through the famous San Luis Obispo Farmers’ Market. Each participant will receive a meal. Transportation will be provided from the Abel Maldonado Community Youth Center, located at 600 South McClelland Street.

Efforts include coordinating free recreational activities, organizing field trips, promoting the Abel Maldonado Community Youth Center as a safe place, and offering job exploration, leadership, and employment opportunities.
