The National Association of Police Athletic/Activities League, Inc. (NPAL), in partnership with 100 of its affiliated Chapters proposes to implement the NPAL Mentoring Program while receiving funding from OJJDP. NPAL will expand and enhance its group mentoring program to directly address risk factors for juvenile delinquency through improved community-police relationships, utilizing a menu of evidence-based mentoring strategies that emphasize positive relationship building and community leadership development.
The goal of the NPAL Mentoring Program is to increase protective factors (improved social competencies, commitment to school and community, positive relationships with adults) and reduce risk factors (positive attitudes to drugs and gang involvement, interaction with the juvenile justice system, association with antisocial peers) of at-risk and high-risk youth. To accomplish this, NPAL will work with target youth ages 8-17 through weekly small group mentoring activities that engage members of law enforcement agencies as mentors. NPAL will enhance and expand its existing mentoring efforts by providing PAL Chapters with a variety of evidence-based practices and curricula designed to address delinquent behavior, promote public safety, and prevent juvenile crime.
