What's Happening at California PAL !!!

Providing Knowledge & Opportunity at the 2014 Life After High School Conference

Over 200 youth and chaperones from PAL programs throughout the state traveled to the University of California - Santa Cruz for the 2014 California PAL Life After High School Conference that was held from August 2nd - 5th, 2014.

Comprised of local PAL youth ranging in age from 13-18 years old, all being incoming high school Freshman to Seniors, the kids received various valuable training about preparing for what will happen once they graduate high school and become adults.  Other topics also focused on important high school preparation topics like how to take Honors and AP courses and preparing for the SAT tests along with career choices, how to prepare resumes and take job interviews and finally on various life skills that the kids will need like establishing bank accounts and using credit wisely.

Helping to coordinate and run the event was the California PAL Youth Directors Council, a fourteen member youth board of directors who have applied and are chosen to represent California PAL.  The Youth Directors Council program was conceived over ten years ago and first launched in 2002.

The overall goal of the Life After High School program is to prepare our PAL youth for the challenges that face them as they go though high school, graduate and either go into college or into some other career choice that they have chosen.  With the limited resources at many  of California's school districts, many of our kids are falling though the cracks and are not prepared for graduation or have no goals and start to be pulled into making poor choices.  California PAL is committed in helping our member chapters and our PAL youth into being as well informed as possible and ready for what faces them in the future.  This program works and we have had many of our previous PAL kids move on to very successful careers after attending college or going into another career path. 

California PAL depends on your support to help reduce youth related crime in your communities.  Please help us achieve this goal.


DonateHomePage_2014More than any other program our “Leadership Academy” needs your support now. It gives kids a chance to learn leadership skills they can use their entire lives. $450 sponsors a youth . . . a bargain when you consider similar programs that cost 4 times as much. Anything you can do will be much appreciated. Every contribution is significant in helping us achieve our goal to give these skills to underserved youth.
