Making a positive difference in the lives of Detroit’s children
Detroit PAL is a non-profit organization positively impacting the lives of more than 12,000 children each year. With roots dating back to 1969, our group works to create safe and supportive places for kids to play. We also train and certify more than 1,700 volunteers each year to become encouraging coaches and mentors to the city’s youth.
In partnership with the Detroit Police Department and community volunteers, Detroit PAL builds character in young people through athletic, academic and leadership development programs.
We strive to achieve three important goals for our kids:
- Young people with high character
- Young people who lead active and healthy lifestyles
- Young people who give back in their community
