Youth Leadership Council (YLC)

Youth Leadership Council (YLC)

The Albany PAL Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is made up of high school-aged children who work with Albany Police Officers and PAL staff to discuss and recommend effective ways to better Albany PAL. The YLC provides a youthful voice in determining PAL programs, policies, and strategies. The children of YLC provide positive peer role models, improve communication between PAL staff and the youth they serve, and perform community service projects. The YLC meets at the Albany PAL Center @ VI every 1st and 3rd Thursday from 6:30-7:30 PM.

For more information on YLC or to register for YLC 2017, email



Explorers is a career education program for high school-aged youth who are interested in learning more about the field of law enforcement. Explorers emphasizes five areas of importance; career opportunities, service learning, leadership experience, life skills, and character education. The mission of the Explorer program is to serve others by helping instill core values in young people and, in other ways, prepare them to make ethical choices throughout their lives so they can achieve their full potential. The Explorers meet at Albany High School every other Thursday at 6pm and are advised by Albany Police Officers.

      Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program is a FREE program which matches Albany City youth with compassionate, concerned, and interested adults from the community. Mentors and mentees meet once a week at the Albany PAL Center for a 60-90 minute session. Mentors and mentees will participate in a variety of activities such as character and leadership development, health and life skills, sports and recreation, arts and crafts, and education and career development programs.

Fall 2017 Mentoring will resume on September 20th. Dates and times will be announced shortly. To register for Mentoring, email Sabrina at
