Our Mission
To enable and inspire youth from the Greater Danbury Community to have

fun, stay active, and develop character building skills through recreational

activities in a healthy and safe environment.

With that goal in mind, we offer over 13 different youth development programs for boys and girls. We also have several different affiliate programs that are run under the PAL name.

Check out our Program Page for contact information.

The PAL Center is our independently run facility that houses some but not all of our programs. It is also available for community events, leagues, and larger PAL events.

Although PAL does generously receive support from the City of Danbury we are independently run and governed by a Board of Directors. Much of our day to day operations and programs are possible through the philanthropic support of our community and the dedicate work of many volunteers.

In June 2016 the PAL Board of Directors approved a 3 year strategic plan. This plan has threww main objectives which can be seen on the attached document. The goal is to set a clear course for future growth, further clarify our mission, develop a long term plan for sustainability and continued service to our community. We are excited to have staff and volunteers partner together to bring this vision to a reality.
