Welcome to the Hopewell Valley Safety Town

Safety Town is a community project designed to provide hands-on safety education for children. A realistic, child-sized town with miniature streets, buildings, crosswalks and working traffic lights, Safety Town offers an authentic setting for bicycle, pedestrian and vehicular safety instruction.

PQMSafety Town is a one-week summer program offered to rising Hopewell Valley School District Kindergartners. The program is directed by YMCA staff members with assistance from local youth volunteers and features visits by police, firefighters, paramedics and other local first responders.

The mission of the Hopewell Valley Safety Town is to provide rising Kindergartners in Hopewell Valley with an introduction to safety awareness in a safe, fun and constructive play environment. This early childhood safety education program is designed so children will have the tools to be able to create safe situations for themselves in everyday life, including social skills, traffic & pedestrian skills, safety in the community and safety at home.

We need your help!

Safety Town cannot operate without the support of people willing to give their time and resources for the safety of our children. Volunteers are always needed to act as guides for the children, perform administrative tasks and assist with maintenance.

Donations are always welcome to help pay for maintenance, new construction, and on-going costs of operating this facility. For more information contact the Hopewell Valley YMCA.
