Our Community Starts Here

I am the oldest and the first in my family to receive a graduate degree. The officers and mentors at PAL believed in me and gave me confidence to achieve many goals.

PAL has re-opened for youth offering a combination of indoor and outdoor activities. 

Youth are assigned to a pod and will experience a variety of educational enrichment,
recreation and sports activities.

PAL and the City of Santa Monica continue to place the highest value on the health and
safety of our community. Taking our guidance from LA County Public Health
Guidelines for School Age Day Care Facilities, additional mandatory safety protocols and
procedures have been implemented in an effort to keep us all as safe as we can be during
this time. Please contact the PAL office for registration information.  

PAL is FREE to youth ages 6–17 who live or attend school in Santa Monica!

The PAL Youth Center is open Monday–Friday | 2:30 PM–7:30 PM
Closed Saturday and Sunday
