The basic mission of PAL is to offer youth of Dunn and the surrounding area a viable alternative to the temptations of street life, which can lead to a life of crime, alcoholism, drugs, vandalism, delinquency and gangs. PAL keeps young men and women active, interested and busy through its supervised/ multifaceted programs geared to develop leadership traits and build good citizens for tomorrow. PAL is dedicated to instilling in youth a value system that recognizes the need to respect and protect human rights and to uphold and obey the laws of our city, state and nation.
Established in 1995, Dunn Police Athletic & Activities League, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to giving back to the community by spearheading afterschool programs for children. The activities we organize include, but are not limited to various sports like basketball, wrestling, flag football, and others. Our goal is to keep kids in school, playgrounds, and other safe environments in order to give them a better chance of achieving the bright future they deserve.
Far too many times, we have seen kids who had so much promise and potential succumb to negative influences that derail their education and their life as a whole. There is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing a kid with such a bright future ahead of him (or her) lose sight of their dreams and fail to live up to their potential. We want our kids to grow up to be well-disciplined, educated, successful productive citizens who will one day lead our nation.
