What We Do

In 1969, the Detroit Police Athletic League (PAL) was founded and since then has been supported by many of the biggest names in Detroit.
The organization began as an initiative to create safe and supportive places for kids to play while building positive relationships between the police department and the community.
Detroit PAL is now integrated in the fabric of the Detroit community where parents
and schools connect to programs for youth that develop their confidence and motivation to go far in life. Detroit PAL provides year-round programming in sports and youth enrichment for more than 13,000 participants through the efforts of 2,000 volunteers and mentors. We
focus on teaching values both during and “After the Game” where youth learn transferable life lessons.
