Purdue has stepped up to address the needs of those young people with a program that focuses on fitness, nutrition and life-skills unavailable to kids in similar situations in most other cities in the country.
The Lafayette School Corporation holds PALS in high regard for their outstanding work with our children in the summer months. We greatly appreciate the evolution of the STEM-based curriculum and highly desire its continuation in the future.
PALS continues to add relevant programming to help campers prepare for their future.
Campers are engaged, excited to learn and respond in inspiring ways to the life lessons they are being taught. If you want to witness positive change in the life of a youngster, visit PALS. You, too, will be transformed!
PALS has definitely brightened the lives of countless young people. I can’t think of a more noble cause.
From the first moment I learned about PALS, I knew it was a worthwhile program that needed our support. Reaching out to these kids and giving them the experiences and leadership training that they are receiving is just fantastic. Seeing and hearing the appreciation we receive from the participants and their families for our support confirms that our participation in this program is well worth the investment.
I believe so strongly in this program. It incorporates so many life skills into a short time frame but the results are seen for years to come. Many of those who have been the underserved in our community have gone on to complete college and return to volunteer in the summers to help someone else get a hand up!
