Boston Police Activities League ~ Engaging Cops & Kids to Build a Better Boston

Help Fulfill the Dream

For many inner-city youth in Boston, the Dream is still as intangible today as it was when MLK walked for social justice. There is more work to do to empower our youth and improve our communities.

For 35 years, PAL and the Boston Police Department have worked to BUILD TRUST and CHANGE LIVES through providing meaningful engagement and access to opportunities, in an effort to decrease the gap in social and economic inequality. 

The Boston Police Department is a national leader in community policing, a widely accepted philosophy whereby the police and the community work together to solve problems of crime, disorder and safety issues to improve the quality of life for everyone.

Through Boston PAL’s continued support of BPD initiatives, we are extending the reach and collective impact of community policing programs.  Let’s all work to fulfill the DREAM!
