The Police Athletic League of North Miami (PALNM) is a non-profit organization that consists of police officers, educators, business and civic leaders, parents, and citizens of the North Miami community to provide programs for our youth. PALNM was established to fill a need for youth (ages 8-18) who needed to be provided with supervision in after school programs. The main objective of the PALNM program is to meet the needs of our youth through a variety of after school athletic and educational programs utilizing positive role models such as police officers, educators, and community volunteers in informal settings other than the structured classroom environment. Some activities include boxing, track and field, Youth Development Council, Junior Police Cadet, and the Explorer Program—all of which are explained further in the PROGRAM section of this website. PALNM also provides educational services such as after school help with homework in English, Reading, and Math.
PALNM is constantly striving to expand upon its programs to enhance the youths’ knowledge and broaden their experiences through the program’s services. Our goal is to provide youth healthy physical and mental fitness, good sportsmanship, and high moral and civic values.
