PAL seeks volunteers
Manchester - posted Sep, 07 2012
MANCHESTER- Founded in 1992 by Captain Patrick Reeves (1957-2007) and Det. Russell Wood (Ret.), The Manchester Police Activities League (PAL) was established to foster positive relationships between youth and police officers. Today, PAL continues to create opportunities and activities for positive interactions between police officers, civilian mentors, and youth in Manchester in support of youth success. Within that history is a commitment by the organization to assist students in Manchester with academics, specifically homework, projects, and study skills. The PAL Hilliard Mills club (formally the Parkade Homework Club) began serving students in Manchester in 1998. Most of the students who come to the club are of middle school and high school age although elementary school age children are welcome. The club offers after-school assistance with homework and projects. Students work in supervised settings with adults who act as tutors and mentors. Those mentors are made up entirely of volunteers who give time each week to help our youth succeed in school! The PAL Hilliard Mills Homework Club meets Monday through Thursday from 2:45 - 5 p.m. and runs from October to Early June. This fall, the Hilliard Homework Club is seeking volunteers to help PAL continue the traditional of assisting Manchester Youth with their academics.
