Police Athletic League After School Program Begins Monday
CHRISTIANSTED – The Police Athletic League, under the direction of the Crime Prevention Bureau of the Virgin Islands Police Department, is pleased to announce the beginning of the Police Athletic League (PAL) After School Program.
The PAL After School Program will start on Monday October 5 at the Police Athletic League facility located in Estate Richmond (in the vicinity of the David Hamilton Jackson Terrace Housing Community) from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday throughThursday. The fee is $25.00 per student and each participant’s immunization record is required at the time of registration.
“We’re servicing students between kindergarten through eighth grade, with homework assistance, along with tutoring in math and language arts,” Officer Gail Liburd of the Crime Prevention Bureau said. “We’ll also have computers available so that the students, especially students in the public schools may continue using the reading program that they use in school.”
Officer Liburd said the program hopes “to reach out to those high schools students [who] don’t have access to a computer or the Internet once they’re home to come over and join us, not to be part of the after school program but use the computer lab to complete their assignments.”
For further information concerning the PAL After School Program, please call the Crime Prevention Bureau at (340) 773-6393 and ask for Officer Liburd.
