Chapel Hill UMC PALS

Chapel Hill PALS Program

The grant award was for an Indianapolis Police Athletic League as a partnership between the church, IMPD and Chapel Hill Apartments and Townhomes. The PALS program is intended to engage at-risk youth from Indianapolis’s west side in educational, cultural, and fitness activities while building positive relationships with each other and with local law enforcement. The concept developed as a response to tensions between communities of color and the police.
