New York Police Athletic League
New York, NY
Since 1914 the New York Police Athletic League has been serving New York City's youth with safe, structured programming designed to engage boys and girls in positive activities that improve their quality of life, present developmental opportunities, and offer the prospect of a brighter future. What started out as the closing of streets by the New York City Police Department to enable the city's unsupervised youth to play, became a city-wide Cops & Kids movement and later national model that brought communities and police together in ways that continue to this day.
PAL is New York City's largest independent youth development not-for-profit organization that operates early childhood education programs, after-school, evening teen programming, summer day camp, youth employment, juvenile justice and re-entry, PLAYSTREETS and for pre-school kids, children and adolescents ages 2 to 19 in all five boroughs of NYC. In its 99th year of service, PAL is continuing its evolution and remaining a vibrant and vital New York institution.
Support from the StubHub Foundation, a corporate advised fund of Silicon Valley Community Foundation, will help fund PAL's annual PLAYSTREETS program and year-round sports and recreational programming. Through its Rising Stars program, StubHub is also lending employee talent and other pro bono resources to help PAL expand the reach and impact of its youth sports programming, particularly in underserved New York City communities such as the Bronx.
