Educational Programs


Academic Achievers

Education comes first at Nashua PAL. EVERY afternoon starts with homework.

Within the PAL Youth Safe Haven, every member is expected to perform at their highest level in school, at home, and in the community.  Each day, youth are paired with a mentor (staff, college student, volunteer, or peer) to work through homework and other brain stimulating activities. This connection leads greater success in school, and provides a solid foundation for future academic achievement.

Members looking for school supplies can find everything they need at PAL.

Mentors in Action


There can never be too many positive men and women in our community.

PAL Mentoring takes place at college campuses, on athletic fields, within the PAL Youth Safe Haven community center, and throughout every PAL program. Our community partnerships, allow us to create formal one-on-one mentor/mentee matches, while also providing small group activities that connect positive community members with PAL youth.

Mentoring MATTERS! If you are interested in sharing a skill, advice, and/or quality time as a mentor, contact us today!

Summer Experience



Image

PAL Youth Safe Haven members EARN a summer of fun and mind-expanding field trips after demonstrating a commitment to the community. Youth show their commitment through positive behavior, regular success in school, and consistent participation in community service.

Youth that earn these trips load a bus each Monday in the summer. Trips include state and national parks, beaches, zoos, water/amusement parks, and so much more. Each weekly trip entertains and educates 50+ youth.

Like so many PAL programs there is no cost to the program for youth demonstrating their positive commitment to the community.

PhotoVoice



Giving youth cameras to discover, document, and display their surroundings empowers them to see how they can positively impact the community. This unique project empowers change by teaching youth about photography, and how to enact change through what they find.

PhotoVoice artwork can be found at the Nashua PAL Youth Safe Haven.
