TimesLedger Newspapers

The Police Athletic League is looking for volunteers to continue its mission of serving New York City’s young people by donating their time and talents to help serve Queens youngsters at PAL’s Redfern Cornerstone and Far Rockaway Beacon in Arverne-Far Rockaway, PAL’s Edward Byrne Center in South Jamaica and PS 214 in Flushing.

PAL Centers in Queens offer a wide range of opportunities for volunteers of all talents. PAL’s Redfern Cornerstone and Far Rockaway Beacon are looking for people to participate in a center cleanup day. Volunteers are needed to tutor and mentor young people during the after-school program’s daily homework help sessions.

In addition, individuals can also donate their time assisting the many special events held at PAL Centers throughout the year. PAL is also seeking professionals to give career advice and talk about their own careers to young people, as well as guest speakers who can share information on a specific hobby of interest to youngsters.

To become a volunteer or learn more about volunteer opportunities, visit and click on “Get Involved” under the “About Us” tab for an application. Volunteers will go through an application process that includes an interview, a screening and an orientation.

For more information, contact PAL Volunteer Coordinator Alexandria Sumpter-Delves at 212-477-9450, Ext. 390 or
