THE STAR/PAL MISSION: Building meaningful relationships between law enforcement and youth through engaging activities and dialogues, cultivating communal trust and laying the groundwork for an ethical community policing model to be applied nationwide.

Recognizing the Potential in San Diego’s Youth

This community is full of talent and potential—kids and teens with great ideas, passionate souls, and enormous dreams. But under-resourced areas like ours can present roadblocks that stop our most promising achievers from realizing their goals and dreams.

STAR/PAL is a not-for-profit organization devoted to removing those obstacles to help our young people thrive. Law enforcement personnel work through STAR/PAL as volunteers to forge mentorships, friendships, and lifelong support networks for San Diego’s youth. The connections built here open doors, grow minds, and inspire new ideas that shine a light into a world of possibilities.
