Many of our PAL member’s student-athletes start off at a young age at PAL and continue to play basketball for PAL up until age 17. Quite a few go on to participate in local high school basketball programs. PAL basketball is recognized as one of the best in Atlanta. Our coaches work with our youth teams on a daily basis. PAL host numerous clinics during the off-season and skills camps throughout the year.

Projects completed include: replacing wood chips and replanting flowers in our garden and repainting our outside benches. Installing new tetherball court, bike rack .  The group also assisted building new cubbies and changing rooms and cleaning and organizing our equipment and storage rooms and donated a washer and dryer to the center.

It is because of people and organizations such as PRUMC and events like The Great Day of Service that the Atlanta PAL Centers can continue our mission to help the youth members we serve to realize their dreams and goals.

PRUMC  26th annual Great Day of Service. Our sincere thanks to the volunteers from Peachtree Road United Methodist Church (PRUMC).  On Saturday, March 24 (2018), this dedicated group shared their time and talents at the Atlanta PAL A.D. Williams Park Recreational Center, making many improvements to the facility and grounds.  It was all part of the PRUMC’s annual community volunteer day: .
