The PAL is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization operating under the direction of a Board of Directors. Our Mission is as follows:

“The Mission of PAL is to improve the immediate and future quality of life for the youth of our city and surrounding communities through educational, recreational, cultural, social/emotional, and prevention quality programming in collaboration with law enforcement.”

These programs are offered but not limited to community-based organizations and not-for-profit 501(c)(3) youth service agencies and facilities; this collaborative rationale is part of an effort to maximize, not duplicate, opportunities furnished to area youth.
