Youth Development Programs

RPAL's youth development programs promote positive development, even when seeking to prevent problem behaviors. Our youth development programs engage young people in a manner that is productive and constructive.  Our programs seek to recognize, utilize, and enhance young people's strengths; and promote positive outcomes for young people by providing opportunities, fostering positive relationships, and furnishing the support needed to build on their leadership strengths. Our youth development programs help young people navigate adolescence in healthy ways and prepare them for their future by fostering their positive development.

Sports & Recreation Programs

The benefits for young people who engage in regular physical activity are clear: they have improved bone health, weight status, cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness, cardiometabolic health, and cognitive function, and a reduced risk of depression. Playing sports can provide additional benefits, including developing competence, confidence, and self-esteem; reducing the risk of suicide and suicidal thoughts and tendencies; and improving life skills, such as goal setting, time management, and work ethic. RPAL's sports and recreation programs provide young people with the opportunity to develop social and interpersonal skills, such as teamwork, leadership, and relationship building, and enables young people to benefit from the communal aspect of team sports.
