Street Teams

Sea Haven’s Project Lighthouse Street Team consist of a minimum of 3 individuals (2 Senior Staff, volunteers/Interns, program youth and other Sea Haven Staff) to venture out into known youth hangouts twice a week to offer resources and program services to runaway, homeless, street youth ages 16-21.

Midnight Outreach

Sea Haven’s Project Lighthouse conduct midnight outreach teams once a month during the summer and Fall seasons. 3 individuals (2 Senior Staff, volunteers/Interns, and program youth) target known youth hangouts and offers resources and program services to the runaway, homeless, at-risk street youth ages 16-21 that they may encounter.  Safety Protocol is key to all outreach workers. The Executive Director and Law Enforcement have schedules of the midnight outreach event as well as security management on the Boulevard.  Check in procedures are mandatory and all staff and participants wear program t-shirts, picture ID’s and there is signage on program van.

Bike Outreach

Bike Outreach happens during the summer months when the traffic in downtown Myrtle Beach is at its worst. Outreach staff go out in the community on bicycles on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. til 11 a.m. to beat the heat of the day and promote awareness to street youth.
