RPAL provides Richmond youth with a wide variety of crime prevention services while exposing them to life beyond Richmond. Approximately 3000 youth benefit annually from our program by participating in recreational, educational, social and even, spiritual activities. RPAL staff, police officers and other volunteers mentor these kids daily. RPAL members participate daily in tutoring, computer science and bicycle repair activities. They produce and perform songs in our recording studio and play pool, ping pong and foosball in our game rooms. They even watch television, play video games and eat snacks while socializing with other PAL members. Members take part in sports programs like basketball, soccer, track, golf, fishing, baseball, and football. RPAL keeps Richmond youth involved in meaningful and constructive activities free of criminal contact.
