Under the leadership of a full-time police officer as Executive Director, and with vital assistance from a volunteer board made up of citizens and local law enforcement officers, PAL offers the youth of the community an array of recreational, athletic and educational activities.
Programs are designed with a two-fold purpose: to create better relations between law enforcement officers and youth, and to prevent juvenile delinquency.
For over 50 years, thousands of youths (ages six to twenty-one) have been involved with PAL programs. In fact, many former PAL participants have become accountants, attorneys, doctors, educators, fire fighters, police officers, and professional athletes.
Miami Beach PAL was founded in 1958, making it the oldest PAL in the state of Florida.
