The mission PAL of North Miami is to cultivate the partnership between parents, schools, the community, and the police department to Developing Productive Active Leaders from our communities’ youth. The new facility will allow for all this to be accomplished at one site. The projected time of completion is about two years from now and was made possible by funding from the City of North Miami.
PAL aims to meet the needs of our youth through a variety of after school athletic and educational programs utilizing positive role models, such as police officers, educators, and community volunteers in informal settings other than the structured classroom environment. Some activities include basketball, track and field, boxing and educational services, such as tutoring in English, Reading, and Math.
