Keeping kids off the streets and safe during the long school-free days of summer is a challenge for many towns and cities throughout the county, and a primary goal for the Police Athletic League of West Palm Beach (PAL). A new program, #PALTeenClub offers middle and high school-aged children their own club to meet up, enjoy activities and have fun in a safe, supervised environment.
The afterschool, weekend, and summer #PALTeenClub program is possible thanks to support from Related & Downtown Development Authority with the support of PSC (Professional Security Consultants) and the West Palm Beach Police Department. High school and middle school aged kids are invited to the PAL Center located at 720 N. Tamarind Avenue in West Palm Beach Mondays through Thursdays from 3 pm to 10 pm, and Fridays and Saturdays from 3 pm to 11 pm.
“We are excited about this new programming for the teens in our community” shared Brittany Perdigon, executive director of the Police Athletic League of West Palm Beach, Inc. “With the support of our community partners we are able to do more for the teens in our community and help to lead them to a safe and successful future.”
Kids joining the #PALTeenClub can enjoy a host of activities including open mic nights, the fashion and beauty club, video games, pool, music, art, fitness, dance parties and more.
The Police Athletic League of West Palm Beach strives to prevent juvenile crime and violence by providing civic, athletic, recreational and educational opportunities to the youth of West Palm Beach.
