Detroit PAL Youth Voice Council members work on their t-shirt designs during a meeting on June 29.














A group of Detroit PAL participants work together as one voice to lead the 13,000 kids we serve annually. Through engagement, activities and outreach the Youth Voice Council will understand the issues facing youth in the Metro Detroit community. The council provides an environment for current and future Detroit PAL kids and families to learn and engage.
