The mission of STAR/PAL is to empower underserved youth to build a safer and more prosperous community by engaging with law enforcement and collaborative partners.
- Promote youth safety through crime & violence prevention education
- Cultivate youth empowerment through civic engagement & enrichment activities
- Offer youth programming in underserved communities
What we do:
STAR/PAL offers free programs for underserved and at-risk youth in San Diego that are led by law enforcement officers. These programs focus on violence prevention, mentoring, leadership, civic engagement, outdoor enrichment, and physical fitness. Our U.S. Bank Center to Serve Youth, located at Colina Del Sol Park in the heart of Mid-City, gives a community law enforcement presence that provides safety to hundreds of youth who walk to and from school each day. Every year, thousands of youth from inner-city neighborhoods throughout San Diego participate in our impactful programs.
