To offer a wide-range of programs and services that meet the mentoring, athletic and recreational needs of children in the Greater Danbury community.
The Danbury Police Activities League (PAL) is a non-profit volunteer driven organization that serves children ages 5-18 throughout the Greater Danbury area. We are one of the largest providers of youth activities, running 18 different programs including youth open gym, basketball, softball, swim, cheer, field hockey, dodgeball, wrestling, summer program, and various other programs. We continue to add additional programming each year in an attempt to help fill gaps in the community.
OUR STORYPAL was founded in 1964 with the goal of providing children a safe and healthy alternative to drugs, violence, and crime. With that goal in mind, we offer a variety of youth development programs for boys and girls of all ages. We also have several different affiliate programs that are run under the PAL name. The PAL Center, built in 1997, is an independently run facility that houses some but not all of PAL programs. Although Danbury PAL receives generous support from the City of Danbury, it is independently run and governed by a Board of Directors. Much of Danbury PAL's day to day operations and programs are possible through the philanthropic support of our community and the dedicated work of many volunteers.
