Santa Monica Police Activities League
Our Community Starts Here
Santa Monica PAL firmly believes that all youth are assets to our community. PAL's programs and activities are used as a vehicle to help youth develop skills that build self-esteem and encourage them to reach their full potential.
PAL is a 501(c)3 corporation with a non-profit Board of Directors that works in a public-private partnership with the City of Santa Monica. PAL's after school programs provide educational, cultural, fitness and recreational programs for youth ages 6–17 and is a unique community organization that fosters trust between youth and the men and women of the Santa Monica Police Department.
The PAL Youth Center has an abundance of enrichment and recreational classes such as homework assistance, coding, college preparation, biking, culinary arts, creative dramatics, arts & crafts, dance and basketball.
The PAL Fitness Gym also has an array of fitness classes including karate, boxing, weight training, dancing, and open gym workouts. Excursions and special events are also included in the many PAL activities at both sites.
PAL staff come from the Community Services Department—Housing and Human Services Division and Santa Monica Police Department. Additional coaches and instructors come from community members who volunteer their time.
The PAL Youth Center is located at 1401 Olympic Blvd. and is open Monday–Friday, 2:30 PM–7:30 PM.
The PAL Fitness Gym is located at 2200 Virginia Ave. and is currently closed.
