WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, AND WHY
Who We Are - The Oklahoma City Police Athletic League (OKC PAL) is a 501(c)(3) organization that exists, in partnership with the Oklahoma City Police Department, to serve students and schools in Oklahoma City.
What We Do - We provide athletic programs, leadership skills training, and service opportunities to the students and schools involved in our programs.
Where We Operate - Through an established partnership with the Oklahoma City Public School System (OKCPS), the majority of our programs happen at our local schools. The PAL Center is located at 3816 S. Robinson Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73109.
When We Operate - We have four full time police officers running our programs in designated OKCPS schools during school hours. In addition to that, we have afterschool mentoring and martial arts programs, as well as our elementary athletic leagues, which take place after school and on weekends during their respective seasons.
Why We Exist - The Police Athletic League came to life in New York City in 1914 with a two-fold intention: to create a safe place for kids to play and to better the relationship between police officers and youth. The OKC PAL program exists in support of that same mission. We aim to drive change by providing positive opportunities for our youth and their future. We are all about Cops Helping Kids Succeed!
