The Richmond Police Activities League (RPAL) is a nonprofit, community-based organization founded in 1982 offering youth an alternative to the streets.  

We are dedicated to supporting young people ages 10-18 holistically as they transition from adolescence to adulthood. We are passionate about having an impact on at-risk youth to help them recognize their full potential and achieve success.
Our programs meet young people "where they are", offering a myriad of programs that are structured and challenging yet enjoyable for our members. Our programs and resources are essential to many young people who frequent our youth center. We provide services to over 2000 youth yearly. Whether they need a meal, homework assistance, a safe place to go during after-school time, or just need a caring adult to talk to, RPAL is responsive to their needs.
Over the course of 35 years, RPAL has served over 50,000 youth. RPAL continues to have a positive impact on the lives of the young people we serve.
