POLICE ATHLETIC LEAGUE OF DELAWARE

   OUR MISSION

  • Prevent youth crime in Delaware by providing youth between the ages of 8 to 18 with supervised athletic, educational, and social development activities.
  • Reach out to youth with programs which address citizenship, self-esteem, substance abuse, and respect for law and order.
  • Encourage participation and support by the community in P.A.L. programs to help build a solid foundation for Delaware’s youth- for life.

The Police Athletic League of Delaware prides itself on being an integral part of the lives of young people. Throughout the school year as well as the summer months the PAL offers many different prevention programs that we hope will deter juvenile delinquency. Through collaboration with the New Castle County Police Department the effectiveness of these programs is intensified. The officer’s presence and influences on the young people promote a positive outlook for possible future endeavors.

P.A.L. is currently reaching out to Delaware’s youth from three sites in New Castle County; New Castle, Hockessin and Delaware City.

The National PAL Mentoring Initiative (NPAL) is a FREE program funded through the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).

The NPAL Mentoring Program will implement youth mentoring programs to strengthen and expand mentoring services to at-risk/high-risk youth populations and youth with enlisted parents. Through PAL Chapters, mentors and mentees will participate in positive youth development activities, providing greater opportunities for individual/group mentoring and academic achievement. The performance measurements for this initiative will include increasing the participating youth’s understanding of personal, community and interpersonal safety and increasing their perception of social support.
