In partnership with the City of Philadelphia, the Police Athletic League is proud to have the opportunity to connect Philadelphia City Officials with the next generation of future leaders.
As we celebrate our 75th Anniversary we are excited to continue one of our favorite programs, PAL Day at City Hall, presented by the Tri-State Toyota Dealers Association for the sixth year in a row!
In an effort to engage our young future leaders, 16 PAL centers each chose a high school junior or senior PAL kid to have the unique opportunity to team up one-on-one with city officials to experience city government and build meaningful connections to enhance their future.
“On behalf of The Tri-State Toyota Dealers Association, I want to thank the Police Athletic League for inviting us to be part of this fantastic event once again. We think that it is a true testament to the dedication of our police officers, and city officials, that these programs have helped tens of thousands of kids throughout the city by giving them access to so many incredible resources and Toyota is so happy to help in those efforts with the donation today,” said Paul Muller, President of the Tri-State Toyota Dealers Association.
Mayor Kenny proudly states “Through mentorship programs such as PAL Day at City Hall presented by The Tri-State Toyota Dealers Association, city officials can create a supportive environment and help our youth gain a deeper understanding on how local government operates. As a former PAL kid myself, I know firsthand the positive influence the PAL Officers have on our young people and our communities”, he continued. “I am proud the City of Philadelphia has continued this vital program through the Office of City Representative for the last 52 years, and I am inspired by the PAL youth that continues to show us that Philly is best when we lead with teamwork and hope.”
As PAL celebrates 75 years of ‘Cops Helping Kids,’ we are excited to continue to engage the youth of Philadelphia and provide them with life changing experiences to help enhance their future. To learn more about the 16 deserving students and their mentors for the day click here.
